Thanks for visiting Capital Advisor. I frequently update this blog to cover various topics on personal finance such as investment strategies, financial products that you should buy and ones that you really should stay away from, financial calculators, emerging themes such as early retirement and financial independence, and much more. You can Subscribe through Email and receive new articles directly in your Inbox or you can Subscribe through the RSS Feed and receive new articles in your feed reader.

If you’re filing your income tax returns on your own, an essential piece of data that you would need is the Assessing Officer’s Ward/Circle number. Thankfully, this information has been made publicly available by the Income Tax Department of India at Know Your Assessing Officer (use Internet Explorer to open this page).

Tip Tuesdays is my initiative to share practical personal finance tips — every Tuesday. I’d be delighted if you could share a tip or two from your own experiences. Drop a comment to submit your tip. And, as always, do spread the word if you find this useful.

Hi,
I am a regular follower of your blog. I filed my returns myself this year and this is the first time I’m filing my returns. In the above link for finding the AO Ward , we cannot click on the state.
It’s better to go to the below link and find the assessing officer ward:

Hi,
What if I have a PAN card taken from a different state and currently working at another state?
Will the assessing officer still be the same?
