How to get a TIN ID from the BIR Philippines

How to get a TIN (Taxpayer Identification Number) ID from the BIR in the Philippines? Before you can file your taxes with the government through the Bureau of Internal Revenue, you need to supply your BIR form with a TIN. Likewise, before your employer (if you’re a local employee) can withhold your income tax and file it with the BIR, he should also have your TIN information. TIN should be obtained by taxpayers, such as individuals who is engaged in business and practice of profession, local employees, juridical persons (corporations and partnerships), and persons who needs it to be able to transact with different government agencies (e.g., LTO and DFA). The following are the important information, requirements, steps and procedures in securing a TIN from the Philippine BIR.

 

What is a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN)?

A Taxpayer’s Identification Number (TIN) is a proper identification assigned to a taxpayer for tax purposes. It is indicated in all the taxpayer’s returns (e.g., income tax return, percentage tax return, VAT returns, et cetera), statements and other documents filed with the Bureau of Internal Revenue. A person’s TIN is permanent and he must only have one TIN for his entire life. Any person who secures and or uses more than one TIN shall be criminally liable and shall be punishable by fine and imprisonment pursuant to the provisions of the National Internal Revenue Code of 1997, as amended.

 

Who are required to have a TIN?

Any person, whether natural or juridical (e.g., partnerships and corporations), required by the Internal Revenue Code to file a return, statement or other documents, shall be supplied with or assigned a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) to be indicated in the return, statement or document to be filed with the Bureau of Internal Revenue, for his proper identification for tax purposes (Sec. 236 (j) of the Tax Code). This means that every taxpayer should obtain a TIN first before they can file their tax returns or statements with the BIR. Furthermore, a TIN card also serves as a person’s proof of identity and is required by some government, as well as private entities, in doing transactions with them (an example is when getting a driver’s license with the Land Transportation Office LTO).

Below are the persons who are required to have a TIN:

1. Individuals or employees earning purely compensation income
2. Individuals earning mixed income (income from business /profession and compensation income)
3. Nonresident citizens/Overseas Contract Workers (OCWS)/Seamen earning purely foreign sourced income
4. Estates and trusts
5. Corporations, partnerships, including Government Agencies and Instrumentalities (GAIs) and Local Government Units (LGUs)
6. One time taxpayer and persons registering under EO 98 (securing a TIN to be able to transact with any government office)

 

What are the requirements and procedures to obtain a TIN?

The following are the BIR forms, documentary requirements, steps and procedures for getting a TIN and registering with the BIR.

How to apply for an eTIN online through the BIR eRegistration System?

The BIR, for the convenience of the Filipino taxpayers, has developed the eREGISTRATION (eREG) system. It is a web application system for various taxpayer registration services, such as TIN issuance, payment of registration fee and issuance of Certificate of Registration.

The eTIN is a module of the eREG System, which offers convenient access to application for Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) over the internet. Currently the system can accommodate individual taxpayers, which include (a) self-employed individuals such as Single Proprietors and Professionals, (b) Mixed Income Earners (e.g. employee and single proprietor and/or professional at the same time), (c) local employees, and (d) Executive Order (E.O.) No. 98 or those individuals who are securing TIN to be able to transact with other government offices such as LTO, NBI, DFA, and others. Issuance of TIN is free of charge.

Single Proprietors and Professionals may apply for TIN straight to the eTIN. Each user should have a unique and valid email address through which the TIN and other instructions on taxpayer registration shall be sent. After securing the TIN, Single proprietors and Professionals are required to pay the Registration Fee (RF) of P500.00 thru Authorized Agent Banks (AABs) located within the RDO indicated on the email notification or thru the following BIR-accredited payment facilities i.e., eFPS and G-Cash:

Local employees may secure their TINs from their respective employers who in turn must be enrolled in the eTIN. Employers should be active Withholding Tax Agents for Compensation Earners. Employers may enroll in the eREG by clicking on Create Employer User Account at the left side of the page.

Prospective EO 98 taxpayers may secure their TINs through authorized Government Agencies and Instrumentalities (GAIs). GAI authorized users may logon to the eTIN by clicking on the Authorized User Login at the left side of the screen.

Take note again that securing more than one TIN is criminally punishable pursuant to the provisions of the National Internal Revenue Code of 1997, as amended. Every person who uses this facility for any purpose other than as intended will be investigated and dealt with accordingly.

Note: For those who already have a TIN or Taxpayer Identification “Number”, but have lost their TIN card, please read our post on “how to replace lost or damaged TIN card“.

For more information about eRegistration, please read the BIR Frequently Asked Questions about eRegistration and eTIN systems.

    ic… thanks men! this is so useful for me.. very informative that is!. I applied for eTIN thru their website.. after I Hit submit it says GO to your BIR (sort of like that) so I guess i just have to pay for the annual registration/ certification/documentary stamp.. am I right? ^_^

    • Vic

      Hi Lou,
      Your welcome. Yes you will follow the subsequent instructions provided by the eTIN application.

  2. Anonymous

    This is really helpful-for those who doesn’t have TIN yet. The header says HOW TO GET A TIN ID…but the contents are just all about how to get a TIN. You’re practically misleading me here, but thanks for the effort anyway…

    • Vic

      Hi Mr/Ms Anonymous, Thanks for commenting. ID means identification. When you have your TIN card, you can use it as a valid ID in the Philippines. Thanks.

      • Hope

        How can I get my TIN card?

      • lulu

        How will i get my TIN ?

      • raffy

        hi,

        i think what he/she is pertaining to is the physical id. i too have the same concern. i already have a tin number. how can we get the physical id and what are the requirements? thank you.

    • Renz

      Yah i agree. The title is totally misleading. The procedures are clearly for obtaining you TIN NUMBER but not your ID CARD. Ive browsed most of the comments, and this question keeps on popping up. unfortunately the author has no plans or wouldnt bother answering this concern.

      • Hi Renz. There is no CARD in the title, although you will get it eventually if you will read the whole post and the resources linked by the post. I hope you have carefully read and understood the post. TIN is obtained not only by individuals, but also by corporations. Requirements and step for getting TIN are listed above, if you will submit and follow them, the BIR will issue you your TIN card. Now, if you already have a TIN, and you lost it, there is an instruction/link at the bottom of the post on how to replace your lost TIN “CARD”. There are already more than 100 comments on this post – are you sure, you have already browse them all, or you’ve just read some few comments on the top? This site is free, I hope that our readers would exert some effort to carefully read our content for their own informational use. For more information and confirmation, please contact the BIR. Thank you for generously sharing your comment and thoughts.

    Sir dun po sa category na . INDIVIDUALS EARNING PURELY COMPENSATION INCOME (employees)
    Required po yung Certificate of employment or valid Company ID, kaso pre employment palang po ako sa papasukan kong company. wla pa po yung dlwang yan. gagamitin ko po ba yung sa huling employer ko po?

    • Vic

      Hi jason,
      As listed, certificate of employment or valid company ID is required to apply TIN for employees. Your old company ID is not valid anymore. The purpose for letting employees have their TIN is to require Employers to withhold taxes from their employees. You’re still in the pre-employment stage. Hence, you’re still not an employee, right? Haven’t you applied a TIN before, since you mentioned you have a previous employer?

  4. lhen

    hi sir,

    i’m currently employed and will be establishing my own business as sole proprietor. do I have to secure separate TIN for my business aside from what i’m using as an employee? thanks. – lhen

    • Vic

      Hi Lhen,
      No. Your personal Taxpayer Identification Number TIN will be the one you will use for your sole proprietorship business. Only corporations, including partnerships, have their own separate TIN since they are considered as separate and distinct juridical entities.

  5. Bhea

    Hello Sir Vic,
    I would just like to know where my daughter can get her TIN ID Card. She started working May 2010 and has already filed an ITR this year. She has a TIN No. but she doesn’t have a TIN ID Card yet. Where can she get it? Btw, we live in Caloocan and she works in Makati. Can she get the ID Card in any BIR branch? How long would it take before she can get the ID Card? Thanks in advance.

  6. Joan

    Is it possible that the company i am working will be the one to get my TIN number?
    and what will i be giving them if it is possible?

  7. Au Africa

    Good evening, Sir Vic. Is TIN Card different from the digitalized TIN ID? I already got a TIN Card (the one that should be laminated, brown paper) but my sister said that the true TIN ID is already digitalized. How can i get one? Thanks!

  8. francis gozos

    how can i avail a new tin id after i lost my original one? and will i get it already at the day of compilation?

  9. Hello Sir Vic. Do I need to get TIN already even if I am only 17 Years old, and turning 18 on September 2012.

    And I am a member of one of Multi Level Marketing / Networking. Also I plan to Get Driver’s License and I requires me TIN.

    Shall I get one now?

  10. Mariles Caballero

    Don’t students need a TIN for their students permit? How do they go about it and under what category do they fall since they are not employed?

  11. Dada

    I have a TIN for many years now, but now I need a card–I think I have long ago lost it. I am overseas, and I wonder if there is a an online service to be able to get a TIN ID or certification online using my old TIN. I am grateful for your reply!

  12. Hi im still a student and i want to apply in bpitrade investment but it requires a tin number. what will i apply:
    ONE TIME TAXPAYERS (With No Previously Issued TIN) or
    PERSONS REGISTERING UNDER E.O. 98 (securing a TIN to be able to transact with any government office, e.g. LTO, NBI, DFA, etc.)

    what is the difference of these 2.. thank you for your reply.

  13. allen

    Hi Sir Vic,

    Just want to ask what are the requirements that i will be needed for applying TIN for my self and for my business (computer shop)? and also how can I get ITR?
    Thank you and I’m waiting for your response the soonest.

    allen

    • Vic

      Hi, assuming you’re applying a sole proprietorship business, your personal TIN and your proprietorship business TIN is one and the same TIN. So you just need to apply one TIN. Please refer to the listed requirements above. ITR forms are available at the BIR, you and your accountant will be the one to prepare it.

  14. Maria

    Hello, I’m gonna start my first job on Monday (Nov.14). The company needs a TIN number or ID from me. Where can I get those? I don’t have a Certificate of employment or valid Company ID yet. What do I do? Thank You! I would really appreciate it if you reply.

    • Vic

      Your company is asking you your TIN for purposes of withholding your compensation income. You can tell your company that you don’t have a TIN yet. Then you can ask them your company ID so that you can get a TIN from BIR. Tell them it’s a requirement.

  15. Jessica

    Hi sir vic. I already had a tin number., but i need a tin card (tin id) .. What are the requirements..? Im currently employed.

    • Vic

      If your previously issued TIN Card is lost, you need to submit BIR form 1905 (Application for Registration Information Update) – Replacement copy of TIN card. You need to attach an affidavit of loss, which is to be notarized. Then go and submit them to the BIR district where you applied for your TIN. Remember that you can only have one TIN for life.

  16. Jero

    Hi Mr.Vic.. gusto ko lang po sanang malaman kung valid po ba ung TIN Card(brown)na in-issue one day bago mag-18 years old? Pls reply.

    • Vic

      For what purpose?

      • Jero

        as valid ID po.. meron napo kasi akong TIN.. kaso lasy Dec.2 nadukutan po ako.. kasama ung TIN ko.. ano pong gagawin ko???

        • Vic

          You should get an affidavit of loss to replace your lost Card. Every taxpayer is only entitled to one unique TIN.

          • Jero

            thanks po.. after po nung affidavit of loss.. pwede na po ba akong magpagawa ng TIN sa BIR? pano ko po marerecover ung number ko? hindi ko po kabisado un.

  17. Hi im still a student and i want to apply in bpitrade investment but it requires a tin number. what will i apply:

    • Vic

      If you still don’t have a TIN ever, BIR will assign you a TIN when you apply for a TIN card. Just visit BIR.

  29. Gresh

    Hi!

    Itatanong ko lang, kasi before nag work ako sa isang company. Sila ung nag apply ng TIN for me. Dapat ba binibigay ng employer ung TIN number sa employees nila? Tsaka wala na kasi ako dun sa company papano kaya un? Nakaalis nalang ako hindi ko alam ung TIN number ko..

    • Vic

      You are the one to apply since it needs your signature. It can also be that your company was the one who prepared and filed your application and they only let you signed the form. Visit BIR and inquire if you already has a TIN in their database.

      • cark

    2.) Papaano ko po macacancel ang TIN?
    3.) Pag nacancel na po ang TIN, ano po mangyayari sa mga accounts na ginamit ko ang TIN na yon? kelangan ko po ba ipapalit ang TIN sa mga accounts na yon?

    salamat po!

    May tanong lang po ako about sa tin application for self-employed. what if natapos na ang pagfill-up o pagprocess nung form, na encode na sa database ng empleyado ng BIR, nabigay na ang TIN tapos ang kulang na lang payment (Php500 annual fee, certification fee at documentary stamp) at an authorized agent bank of RDO. registered na po ba yun o hindi??

    Hi sir.

    i’m worried kasi ever since na nag work ako.. the company nag kakaltas but it never appeard sa BIR. like (KOREAN COMPANIES-online teaching) given na kasi na madaming ghost na nag nenegosyo ng ganyan.. just wondering kasi i need my ITR for getting a VISA since wala namang laman yung mga hulog ko… what should i do with this (Given na din na ndi kona mahahbol yung ibang company since 2 of my previous company closed down na din) and my company ngayon .. may PHILHEALTH, SSS pero walang TAX. so i’m worried pano ako mag kaka ITR. i’m planning of applying next month po sana. this is kind of a burden to me.
