ABCAUS Excel Income Tax TDS Challan ITNS-281 Version 1.5.1 have an inbuilt database facility to add multiple assessee’s records and save them so that users don’t have to feed repetitive information for the next time for generating a subsequent challan for the same assessee. Also while creating the database there is an inbuilt TAN Structure check to alert for a wrong TAN structure being saved in database. Howver extreme care should be taken to ensure that the TAN should not only be structurally valid but should be an existing one that actually belongs to the assessee concerned.

On the request of the users, an option to unprotect database sheet to fill the information directly in the cells have been provided in this version. However users should exercise extreme caution that only correct PAN is filled.

List of various codes have also been made available in a popup box. Also the challan has been updated to provide for option to specify payment of late fee under section 234E.

Users are not required to give blank spaces while filling the pop up Challan form. Dropdown list for various options and check boxes have been provided to save the time of the user.
