How To Get A Digitized Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) ID

In the Philippines, if one wishes to conduct business with government agencies, he/she will be asked to present several government ID’s. Unlike some of these ID’s that take some time to acquire, the Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) is one of the easiest to secure.

The process in securing one has become simpler as the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) came up with online application and the introduction of the Digitized TIN ID under Executive Order 98. E.O. 98 is about securing a TIN to be able to transact with any government office in the country.

The digitized TIN ID is a valid card that does not expire plus it looks a lot better and more durable than the old yellow one we used to have.

Requirements for a Digitized TIN

  • Copy of the taxpayer’s NSO Birth certificate
  • Valid ID (SSS, Driver’s License, Passport, Comelec ID)

Procedures for Applying

  1. Go to the BIR Office who has jurisdiction to your place of work.
  2. Ask for a TIN application form that suits your income situation. If you are applying under E.O.98, you will need BIR Form 1904.
  3. Fill out the form and submit it to the counter along with your existing valid ID.
  4. You will be given your Tax Identification Number.
  5. Request for your BIR ID or the digitized card which you are entitled to under E.O. 98.

The process is normally accomplished within the day, but if it is unusually s busy day, you may have to come back the next day to claim your digitized BIR ID.

Now you have an ID you can use in transacting with other government departments.

How to Apply For a TIN ID Online?

Through the BIR eRegistration System, a more convenient way for applying for a TIN ID was made available for Filipino taxpayers.

The eREGISTRATION (eREG) system is a web application system that provides taxpayers several services such as Tin issuance, payment of registration fee, and issuance of Certificate of Registration.

Individual taxpayers, self-employed individuals, mixed income earners, can apply for their TIN on the internet. Even those who wish to be able to transact with other government offices under E.O. 98 can apply for eTIN.

Issuance of TIN is free of charge.


  1. Apply straight to the eTIN. The applicant must have a valid email address.
  2. Fill out the online form. Make sure that all the information are correct.
  3. Click the “Submit” button.
  4. Your TIN will be sent to your email address.
  5. Single proprietors and professionals are required to pay the Registration Fee of PhP 500.00 to the Authorized Agent Banks located within the Revenue District Office.
  6. Employees may also get their TIN’s from their employers who in turn must be enrolled in the eTIN.
  7. Employers may enroll in the eREG by clicking on “Create Employer User Account” at the left side of the page.
  8. Applicants under E.O. 98 may claim their TIN’s through authorized Government Agencies and Instrumentalities (GAI’s).

REMINDER: Securing more than one Tin is a criminal act and is punishable by law under the provisions of the National Internal Revenue Code of 1997.

    Pwede po ba kumuha ng tin id card sa bir manila kung nka register ung tin number ko sa bulacan.. nung binigay ksi ng employer tin number ko pag check ko sa bir manila sa bulacan daw sya nka record eh dto ako sa mnila nag wwork

    • SphinxPhil19 says:

      Yes by due process. Kuha ka ng Form 1905 and put x dun sa change of registered address. Then fax mo yon sa office kung san ka nag apply ng tin. Ipatransfer mo kung saang RDO mo balak ilipat at kung san ka kukuha ng card. After noon a maximum of 1 week balikan mo ung new RDO mo to verify kung nasa RDO na ba nila ang tin mo. Saka ka kukuha ng Form 0605 to pay the card replacement fee.
