    MSFC has received PAN error default notice for 26Q for the first and third quarter of the F.Y. 2013-14 A.Y. 2014-15. To our knowledge the PAN Nos are correct. Perhaps the error numbers are not on the record of Income Tax Dpartment. Our TAN No. is PNEM07556D and token no. of 26Q Quarter 3 filed on 16.1.2014 is 050819600017874. I am unable to login in to TRACES, as I do not know the user id and password. Therefore, I am unable to go default menu and view the justification report. Besides, I do not know how to down loan the TDS certificate from TRACES. Please help.
