How to Replace Lost or Damaged BIR TIN Card

How to replace lost or damaged BIR TIN (Taxpayer Identification Number) card? If you have already registered a TIN before, but have lost your TIN card, or if your card has been damaged, here are the steps you can do to replace your TIN card and have a new one.

1. Know the BIR District Office where your TIN is currently registered. If you don’t know or is not sure with the Revenue District Office (RDO) where you are currently registered at, you can call and inquire at the BIR TIN Verification Office at 926-8339. You can also call BIR at 981-8888 or email them at .

2. After you have confirmed the RDO where your TIN is currently registered, get a copy or download BIR Form 1905 (Application for Registration Information Update) from the BIR website.

3. Fill up the form with your TIN, taxpayer’s name, reason for registration information update (i.e., replacement of Lost/Damaged TIN Card), signature, and other information that the BIR officer may require you.

4. Secure the required document/attachment for lost or damaged TIN Card. If your TIN Card was lost, secure an affidavit of loss. You can get a duly notarized affidavit of loss from a Notary Public in your town or city. If your TIN Card is damaged, but not lost, and you want to replace it, you need to bring the original TIN Card that is damaged.

5. Visit the BIR District Office where your TIN is currently registered and then file or submit your BIR Form 1905, together with the required documents to be attached (affidavit of loss for lost TIN Card and original TIN card for damaged card).

To check the address and contact numbers of BIR different divisions, Regional offices, and Revenue District Offices, you may visit BIR directory at their website.

        Hi! Good Day!

        We live here in Bulacan but my father’s last employment was in Laguna. His ITR papers and other documents where we can find his TIN was washed out when our place got flooded .My father doesn’t know where he’s TIN was registered by his last employer which was Sarah Hazel Supermarket. We wish to recover his Tax Identification Number because Security Exchange Commission (SEC) required him to have it as the new President of Tricycle Operators Drivers Association (TODA) so that they can renew their membership with them. According to my father, the last administration of TODA failed to renew the membership and now that he wants to renew it, he was required to present his Tax Identification Number.

        If his TIN is being registered in Laguna, is there any chance that we can get it here in Bulacan just by presenting valid ID?

        I hope you can help us about this. Thank You in advance and God Bless!

        I lost my TIN card before then I tried to file for replacement in the BIR branch where I registered. But they gave me a form and they told me that I need to file to another branch which is nearer to my workplace. Is that right? My previous workplace was nearer to the branch where I registered and my new workplace is not listed in their branch.
