How to Get TIN ID Number Online using BIR eReg

The easiest and fastest way to get TIN online, a.k.a. Tax ID Number using BIR eReg. The BIR eReg has cool features for taxpayers providing convenient services like issuance of TIN online, Payment of Registration Fee, and generation of Certificate of Registration.

On this page, we share about how to get TIN online if you’re a self-employed individual.

Who can register TIN online?

Registration of Tax Identification Number online is also called eTIN. It allows the following types of individual taxpayers:

  • Self-employed Individuals (such as Sole Proprietors and Professionals)
  • Mixed Income Earners (those who are both employee and sole proprietor and/or professional at the same time)
  • Employees
  • Those who are qualified under Executive No. 98

How to get TIN ID Number Online if you’re Self-employed Individual?

  1. Go to BIR eReg page
  2. Enter your taxpayer profile information. Make sure every detail you enter is accurate.
  3. Double check each detail and select SUBMIT
  4. You’re done. Wait for an email from the BIR regarding the issuance of your TIN.

TThis is the sample form you are going to fill out online when getting TIN

Note that you only need to do this registration if and only if you never have registered a TIN before. It is prohibited by law to register more than one TIN. In short, we are only allowed 1 tax ID number for life.

You must prepare a valid email address before you register because it is where BIR will send your tax identification number registration status and confirmation.

Tips in Getting Tax ID Number

If you forgot your TIN or you lost a copy of your TIN ID card, you can retrieve it by following this guide: How to recover lost Tax ID Number

Do not get another TIN again if you already registered one before. If you forgot you have gotten one or if you’re not sure you got one already or your employer has gotten you one, you can verify it at the BIR.

Keep your Tax ID Number because you will need it wherever you work or have business with and whenever you earn income.

If you are getting TIN for the purpose of bank account and you are not employed or working as a professional at present, it is recommended to get your TIN at your BIR RDO office to avoid some problems.

  8. Hi guys,

    I tried this weekend and same problem with the link from first email nila but buti nalang i tried a lof of stuff for it to work (kasi I desperately needed a TIN lol)
    i used Mozilla browser and with the link

    try niyo i REMOVE yung https:// from the link saka niyo sya buksan sa tab then mabubuksan yung ereg website (you have to agree on the terms etc) then lalabas na yung forms that you have to complete
    take note, that this seems to be for self-employed lang ata talaga

    i hope it helps!

    The name (DELETED), you are trying to register have a similar record in the BIR database which may have been previously registered with the BIR. Please proceed to the RDO/LTD having jurisdiction over the place of your company/business for verification/manual registration and submit the appropriate BIR Form, complete documentary requirements and a printed copy of this confirmation message. For further BIR concerns/inquiries please contact our Customer Assistance Division (CAD) at 981-7003,981-7020,981-7030,981-7040,981-7046 or email them

      • Possible reason: People having the same informations. ie., Same name, same birthdate, same address or more likely. What you need to do is go to your RD Office and clarify that you are not the same person. They will eventually ask you to fill up a form in order for you to have your TIN.
        PS. Bring any valid IDs.

  19. Hi Ms. Fehl. I’m planning to open a mutual fund. Since I am currently in UAE and I don’t have TIN number, I registered online kaya lang po instead na Form 1904 and kunin ko, Form 1901 po ang na register ko. Ma cancel ko pa po ba un? Paano ko po ba un mapapalitan? may nareceived na rin po akong email confirmation with my TIN no. details.

    Thank you in advance.

    Reply
    • Hi, I think you can use the TIN since it was already been registered to you. Since 1901 is for self-employed and mixed income earners, you can update your BIR records to tell BIR you’re not self employed when you came home in the Phil.

  20. Nag apply ako ng TIN thru eReg then after ko ma-complete at i-submit ung registration ko may nreceive ako na email from BIR tho it was marked as spam so i had to check my SPAM folders to read the email. Here’s what it says.

    Your TIN is *********-**** and you are registered at RDO 038. Please proceed to your RDO to secure your TIN card and Certificate of Registration.

    You may now proceed with payment of the P500 Registration Fee through any of the following options:

    * Over-the-counter at any Authorized Agent Bank under your RDO

    * Over the web through Electronic Filing and Payment System (eFPS)

    * Through text using G-Cash

    ang concern ko lng is kung kelangan ko ba muna magbayad nung 500 bago ako pumunta sa RDO ko o it doesnt matter?

  44. Hello po!
    May concern po ako, dahil ayaw ako bigyan ng TIN # sa BIR dito sa cebu at I’m a person with disability po, napagod na ako sa pakiusap sa kanila bigyan ako ng TIN. Here’s my story. Nagopen ako ng bank account, they asked me po ng TIN, but wala ako nyan, sabi ng tagabanko punta lang ako ng BIR para dun ko kunin TIN ko, asked ako if need ba ako magdala ng kahit anong form galing sa banko para mabigyan ako ng TIN sa BIR, ang sagot ng banko no need, just go there lang aylt magdala ng valid id kon sakali kilanganin., So naisip ko din dapat talaga ako magkaruon ng TIN para sa mga bagay in the near future, baka hindi lang banko maagask ng TIN ko, baka kailanganin ko yan sa ibang bagay din. So I went to BIR, sabi po ng BIR, dapat daw meron akong request form galing sa banko for my TIN, sagot ko na ang sabi ng banko punta lang ako ng BIR at no need to bring any form from bank, sagot naman ng BIR d talaga ako bigyan ng TIN, he insist po bumalik ako sa banko para hingi ng request form, so bumalik ako ng banko agad, kwinto ko sa kanila anong hiningi sakin ng BIR, sagot ng banko sakin na d sila nagbibigay ng request form para magkaron ng TIN ang kahit sinong tao dahil wala silang ganyang patakaran, tumatanggap lang ang banko ng TIN dahil importante yan to open ng account, pero d ibig sabihin na responsible sila magbigay ng request form.para magkaron ng TIN ang tao, dahil trabaho ng BIR nyan. Asked ako sa banko anong dapat kong gawin para mabigyan ako ng TIN sa BIR. Sagot ng banko try nalang daw sabihin sakanila for drivers licence, sagot ko naman, d kaya ako maquestion nyan kasi mejo halata sa mata ang kapansanan ko, baka d parin nila ako bigyan ng BIR for drivers licence. Sagot ng tagabanko sakin, baka nga, pero d daw ako dapat hindian ng BIR if kokoha ako ng TIN ko kahit for bank account pa yan or self-employed, d na alam ng banko kung anong masuggest nila sakin para mabigyan ako ng TIN sa BIR. Nainis na ako. Bakit ba talaga ayaw ako bigyan ng TIN # sa BIR dito sa cebu? Bakit yung iba ang bilis nagkaruon ng TIN #? Ano ba dapat ilagay kong porpse para magkaTIN #? Self-employed, ayaw, banko, ayaw padin. Kanino ba ako lalapit para mabigyan ako ng TIN #? Sa media? Ang hirap magpabalik-balik duon, mayhagdanan pa dun, nakakainis! Sana po, matulongan ninyo ako dahil nakakainis na po. Thank you po.

    • Hi. Not all banks strictly require TIN when opening bank accounts (may I ask which bank denied you?). The BIR will not issue you a TIN under E.O.98 unless you can provide them documentation that requires your TIN.

      My suggestion: go to another bank and explain to them that you want to open a bank account but you have no TIN or ask a relative (with TIN) to open a joint bank account with you. After successfully opening an account, request for a bank certification (which would allow them to peek into your account), indicate the specific BIR RDO that requires the certificate and indicate that the purpose is for TIN ISSUANCE.

      • Security bank ang nagdeny sakin, ayaw ako bigyan ng endorsement para sa TIN, pero mahigpit daw na need talaga merong TIN kung magopen account ang tao. Ang BPI din, ayaw ako bigyan ng endorsement for TIN, muntik na ako d nakaopen account dahil wala akong TIN pero nakaopen ako ng ATM account sa BPI, ang ginawa ko nalang binago ko ang para sa income ko, imbis self-employed ginawa ko nalang allowance. Imbis gusto maging honest ang tao, magsisinungaling nalang dahil sa subrang OA para lang makakoha ng TIN. Para saan ba yang TIN? Tax Identification Number, para ma-Identified ang isang tao kung nagbabayad ng tax,diba? So, dahil wala akong TIN, ibig sabihin nun kahit nagdidiposito ako ng money sa account ko at hanggang lumaki at automatic merong minus ang savings ko for tax, but hindi maidentifie ang name ko sa government na nagbabayad ako ng tax? Baka naman sa record ng gobyerno malagay dun na hindi ako nagbabayad ng tax dahil wala akong TIN, problema na naman. Gusto ko sana may TIN ako para maidentified sa government nagbabayad ako ng tamang bohis para wala akong problema in the future. Lahat ng banko pinuntahan kona at lahat sila nagsasabi na wala silang kahit anong certificates or endorsement para makakoha ng TIN sa BIR.

    • Hello, better go to your RDO na lang, kasi baka kaya hindi nag push through your online application mo is because you aren’t qualified para sa form 1901, but form 1904. If you are unemployed, 1904 ang form mo.

      Reply
  51. Hello,
    For those who are thinking of getting an e-TIN for the purpose of using it to open a bank account, get a driver’s license, Philippine passport, etc. I suggest that you go to your RDO and don’t fill up a form online. UNLESS, you’re a professional and would be willing to pay the necessary taxes related to it.

    Although it is possible to amend the form 1901 to EO 98, it can be time-consuming and a hassle. I did the same mistake last April 21, 2016, because I registered online and was tagged as a PROFESSIONAL! Luckily, the RDO in my area (RDO 26), are nice enough to help me change my tax payer type. Though, they were asking me to present a bank certificate at first, ’cause I told them I wanted to use it to open a bank account.

    I REPEAT. THE ONLINE TIN REGISTRATION IS ONLY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE THEIR OWN BUSINESS OR WORKING AS A PROFESSIONAL. UNEMPLOYED INDIVIDUALS SHOULD GO TO THEIR RESPECTIVE RDO’s AND SECURE AN EO 98!

    Last year of February, I acquired online Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) which is required for opening a COL Financial account.
    I am classified as a sole proprietor and received an email to submit BIR Form 1901 to Revenue District Office (RDO), pay P500 Registration Fee, and secure my TIN card and Certificate of Registration. I did not proceed with these steps. Yesterday, I called the BIR office staff to inquire about my current tax situation. She told me to file first for Income Tax Return (ITR) to avoid penalty before I can cancel my registration. Can I cancel my registration without filing for ITR? Can I amend it using the BIR Form 1904 (E.0. 98) so I won’t need to pay the P500 Registration Fee? How can I change the taxpayer type from sole proprietor to E.O. 98? 

    I am waiting for an affirmative reply from you. Thank you.

    • Hello,
      Naayos mo na? I am experiencing the same thing, and IDK how to transfer from 1901 to E,O 98. 🙁

      • Since Im ofw I applied also my tin through online reg 1901 and tag as professional. So my mother went in my designated RDO and brought my affivadit (with redribbon because im Ofw)) to changed it into one time tax payer. The Rdo changed itt into 1905 under e.0.98 from 1901, otherwise they will charged me taxes if i will continue in 1901 if i will not fix it. Now waiting for the releasing of my id.

          • There are no “steps to follow above”, for the reason that your article only tackles the procedure on how to get a TINumber. She’s asking about steps on how to acquire the physical ID card, In her case, she already has her TIN… without ID. @Desiree Mae Ascrate, you may proceed to the revenue district office which has jurisdiction of your place of residence or place of work. Give the officer your tin and request for your plastic ID print.

    • As of now it isn’t. In the mean time, you can call BIR Customer Service [02-981-8888], then press 1 for TIN Verification. The Customer Service Representative will then ask some personal questions for verification. After verification, they will immediately provide your T.I.N.

  76. Hi.
    For those who would like to verify or retrieve their TIN, you may call the BIR office at (02) 981-8888. Just wait for the instruction given by the operator. She will prompt you to key in your TIN, if you failed to do so, she will then give you options like pressing #1 for TIN verification or registration etc. Hope this helps. xx

    I’m a 20 year old student, in no ways am earning money from a job but I have saved some from the allowances my parents gave to me. Now I’m actually seriously considering on doing something about it.

        Ask ko lan, I have a TIN NUMBER when I was working in the Philippines way back 6-7 years ago. I’m categorized as an employee then, but now I would like to enter into stock market. The question is, could it be possible to use it? Or does it required to upgrade the TIN NUMBER? Thanks!
