Tips in Getting a Tax ID Number Online

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 had applied for a TIN in the past 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 your TIN for the purpose of a 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.
