If Landlord Not Giving PAN. How To Claim HRA Tax Benefits in India ( updated 2018)

If the annual rent paid by the employee exceeds Rs. 1 lakh per annum, it is mandatory for the employee to report PAN of the landlord to the employer. The tax law also says that in case the landlord does not have a PAN, a declaration to this effect from the landlord along with the name and address should be filed by the employee. Can you claim HRA (house rent allowance) if the landlord is not providing you his/her PAN?  

Tax experts say that an employee can still claim tax benefits under HRA in his or her tax return. 
Even if the employer does not allow HRA exemption to the employee - due to non-availability of PAN or declaration by the landlord for not having PAN, the employee still has the option to claim it at the time of filing the income tax return, says Sandeep Sehgal, director of tax and regulatory at Ashok Maheshwary & Associates LLP. "Once a person is to file his/her income tax return, there is no requirement to furnish the PAN of landlord," he adds.


My owner is not giving me his PAN number, can I file income taxes against him? If yes, then how?

1. If you are paying your rent by cheque or online transfer, when you are filing your taxes you can clain HRA with the help of a CA. I have done this for 2 successive years. Provide the CA with your bank statement having filtered monthly Rental transfer.

2. Here is ultimate solution for finding the PAN of your landlord.
