Unlike other government IDs that take some valuable time to acquire, the TIN ID is one of the easiest one to secure.

(Inside Manila) The Tax Identification Number (TIN) is very important for all taxpaying professionals. This will serve as your reference number on the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) records for the rest of your working years, which is why securing more than one TIN number is a criminal act punishable by law under the provisions of the National Internal Revenue Code of 1997.


Before, we have a yellow card that is used to print the TIN ID, but now the government has offered a digitized TIN ID that is far better than the old one. Unlike other government IDs that take some valuable time to acquire, the TIN ID is one of the easiest one to secure. Here’s how.


First, before you get started, you need to have the following as major requirements before you get to apply for your digitized TIN ID:



  • Valid government issued ID like SSS, PRC, voter’s ID, driver’s license, passport, etc.

  • Philippine Statistics Authority issued Birth Certificate


Steps on how to secure your digitized TIN ID over the counter:


Proceed to the BIR office in your place of work. Example if you are working at Makati, you need to go to the BIR office located at Makati.


Secure a BIR form 1904 if you are earning under the EO 98.


After filling out the form, you need to submit this with a valid government issued ID at the counter.


You will be given your TIN ID and you can request to have it digitized under EO 98. The digitized ID is usually finished within the day but if there is high volume of applicants at the time of your filing then you may be asked to come back a day after to get your digitized TIN ID.
