HRA Declaration Form – If Landlord does not have PAN Card Number

Landlord does not have PAN Card NumberJanuary is the time when companies ask their employees to submit investment proofs and rent receipts for claiming income tax benefit/ exemption.

Claiming HRA in case you pay a rent of more than Rs. 1,00,000 is cumbersome now. This is due to a new regulation last year from Income Tax Department stating that you need to submit landlord’s PAN card copy in case the rent exceeds the above amount. In case the landlord does not have a PAN card, he/she needs to give a declaration that he does not have a PAN card.

The authorities have not given any format for the declaration. So We at have come up with a “Landlord without PAN Card” Declaration form.

You can download it, fill relevant details and get it signed from your landlord.

  1. if i am not receiving the HRA from my employer , can i get the entire rent paid by me for tax exemption ?

  2. What is the option if My landlord is not willing to share the PAN even if I pay more than 1 lakh a year as rent. Is there any way out besides showing rent as 1 lakh?

  3. I was staying in two places for this finance year and both has less then 1 lakhs amount for rent. Like 6 months from one landlord (14500*6) and another is having same (14500*6), then do I required to submit the PAN card for both the landlord as Both landlord is getting less then 1 lakhs rupees in one finance year.

    • As per Income Tax the cut off is Rs 1 Lakh annual rent for submitting landlord’s PAN. But I am not sure if your employer would agree about not giving PAN number because you had changed your accommodation midyear. To be on safe side you should submit PAN card of both the landlords

  4. Amit. I rent paid limit p.a is 100000/- but you have mentioned 200,000/-. Please refer IT article and suggest which one is correct

    • The limit for Landlord PAN requirement is Rs 1 Lakh. Earlier this limit was Rs 2 Lakh and the post was not updated since. thanks for pointing this out have corrected it now.

  5. Hi Amit, In case of a Company/Builder (Say DS MAX) is letting out their property for rent, how do we get the HRA exemption.
    The Company/Builder is ready to give all their receipts. The Receipt would have a TIN Number but a TIN number is not accepted for exemption.

    Also the landlord declaration form needs the landlords name and his/her fathers name but in this case their is only an organization that’s letting out the property.

    Please advice.
