How can you retrieve your Login Income Tax and password for income tax e-filing?

It is very common for taxpayers to forget their credentials like the login id and password of their login Income Tax of government of India website and portal. It is a very common mistake which should not be made seeing to the nature and extent of account hacking on rise.

The login id for the login Income Tax page of the portal is actually nothing other than the PAN number of an individual. The password on the other hand is something that has been uniquely created by the taxpayer and it is very important to save it in your mind and prevent it from being tampered. However, in case you’ve forgotten your login credentials you can use the following methods to reset your income tax password.
