Bureau of Internal Revenue RDO Codes
The BIR assigns geographical codes to provide specific tax data summaries, like the amount of taxes collected within a specific region. The Bureau also uses these codes to process and record tax returns, withholdings, and tax payments. Periodically, each regional district office conducts field audit investigations, which requires having regional district office codes.
The RDO Code, or Revenue District Office code, is used whenever we fill out Bureau of Internal Revenue forms. Often people forget or are not aware of their RDO code, so here is a list.
How to Use the RDO Code Correctly
We enter the RDO code on all BIR forms. The form's section has three boxes. If your RDO code is only one digit, enter two zeros before the code. If your code has two digits, enter one zero before the code. For example, if your code is 25, enter 025.

Marizel on September 29, 2014:
for those who ask about transferring of RDO codes ,ask for a copy of form to your HR department ..ask them what form do you need in changing your RDO code ...
then ask them what RDO code they belong ...
Changing of RDO codes only takes almost an hour in BIR ...
