Get Tax Identification Number (TIN) Online in the Philippines

Ok.. My dilemma with Tax Identification Number (TIN) started when I wanted to become a member of the PAGIBIG and SSS. I couldn't push through my application because TIN was always needed. So I searched on how to register online (and was hoping that it's possible) and found a blog which offers a step by step instruction on how I can have my TIN with only a few clicks!

So, the first step is to go to the e-registration page of the BIR and scroll down. There you can see a form to be filled up.

The next step is to fill up the form and click the submit button. Then you will still have to fill other information like spouse name,dependents, etc.









What I can say with registering online is that it asks for a lot of information but compared to going physically to the nearest BIR office, getting Tax Identification Number (TIN) Online can save you the trouble of long lines, hot rooms and tiring application. Not to mention that I am facebooking while registering my TIN number. No SWEAT! :)

    1. Go to your former company and ask the in charge for filing employee's records. it could be the hr then ask for your TIN. Or you can go directly to BIR,tell them you don't know your TIN and if they can give you your number. Bring valid id's just in case. :) hope it helps.

  5. I didn't get it. BIR online says that i have a similar record in the BIR database which means I may already have been previously registered with the BIR. So I still need to go there? still have way?

    2. i'm sorry for the wrong information. When I said the issuance of TIN number is free, i was referring to my experience because I applied under EO 98 (securing a TIN to be able to transact with any government office). If you are required to pay after the online registration, you can go to Authorized Agent Banks (AABs) which is indicated on the email notification sent to you.

  7. I went to the website and it says that the self-employed individuals can get their TIN online. How about the employees? Do I really need to let my employer get a TIN for me or should I just go to the BIR Office directly?

    1. Hey Jessel, I never been a company employee so I can't offer you advice on this one. Though, my friend who is a company worker was given her TIN by the company she worked for and the other one I know, it was a prerequisite for him to comply before he got hired. So, I think it depends on your company. I hope this helps

  8. I am an OFW currently in middle east, I am planning to invest in stock market.I applied TIN number through BIR online registration kaya lang FORM 1901 pala yung na filled up ko for professional or business purposes.

    Pwede ko ba e amend yung aplication ko from FORM 1901 to FORM 1904 since ako po ay OFW. While hindi ko pa ma amend kasi january 2015 pa bakasyun ko. Pwede na po ba ako maka pag start ng transaction sa col financial using the TIN number na nakuha ko sa BIR online registration?. wala ba akong penalty sa BIR pag magsimula ako sa stocks kahit di ko pa ma amend yung status ko?

    Thank you very much.

    1. Dexter, only having 2 TIN is punishable by law. Since you did not get another TIN, you are not going to be penalized. However, because you applied for FORM 1901, you have to pay the annual registration of 500 and 15 pesos for the documentary stamp hru 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. Please check your email address for any instruction.

    1. Uh-oh.. really? 3 years and no TIN? something smells fishy.. I suggest you go to BIR and inquire if you really have your TIN and let them know you're paying tax but your company told you BIR did not issue TIN yet.. Bring all identification you have - birth certificate, ID, company id for verification...do it asap if you can :)
