A Tax Identification Number, or TIN, is required in order to work for pay. If you want to obtain your TIN online, without going to the BIR office, it is possible to do so for free.

TIN Online Application

Individual taxpayers can use the online TIN application. So can self-employed individuals, single proprietors, professionals, mixed-income earners (including employees, single proprietors, and professionals), employees, and those who have qualified for Executive Order (E.O.) No. 98 (to do business with the government).

NOTE: You may have only one TIN for life. If you already have a TIN and forgot it, you may retrieve it by going to the BIR office. Securing more than one TIN is criminally punishable pursuant to the provisions of the National Internal Revenue Code of 1997, as amended.

How to Get Your TIN Online

  • Fill out the online form. Remember to answer all questions before submitting your application
  • Click "submit" and you’re done.

Please stop calling it "TIN number" because the "N" already stands for "Number" it's becoming redundant. Thanks.

How to Get TAX ID?

Dee Jorillo on April 11, 2016:

@Angelica,

If you're gonna work in the Philippines, having a TIN is a must. Your company (or future company, if you're currently unemployed) will use this number whenever they subtract your taxes from your salary. It is our obligation as Filipino citizens to pay taxes, because this is where the government will get funds to implement their respective projects.

alfredo on February 08, 2016:

What is happening to me? I am a first timer in getting TIN, I didn't yet filed my application for getting my TIN at the Bureau of Internal Revenue Office/Website but when i applied through online it always says that "the name that i am trying to register have a similar record in the BIR database which may have been previously registered with the BIR ". But how come? It's magic? Or i have the same name in common together with the address? What should i do now please anybody help me?
