How to Get a BIR TIN ID Card?

Acquiring a TIN ID means that you have your Tax Identification Number (TIN) already. Instructions on getting your TIN number will be provided by your company that you will be working with. Mostly, this is one of the requirements before you'll start your training at work. They may provide you the necessary BIR forms as well as a Certificate of Employment necessary to authorize your application for a TIN.

How to Get a BIR TIN ID Card, before?

I got my TIN ID last year 2007. The process was very slow. As far as I remember, I filled out an information slip that was given to the assigned person. I was informed to be back after two weeks to get my TIN ID printed.

How to Get a BIR TIN ID Card, now?

Well, I appreciate the recent process as I observed. You just need to fill out two copies of the information slip and you go to the assigned person to get your TIN ID printed. No payments necessary.

But, How about Getting a New TIN ID because you got your ID lost?

The same process but you need to pay Php 100.00 before your TIN ID gets re-printed.

I hesitate when the assigned person informed me to pay first. I thought of looking my TIN ID first at home and hoping to find it sooner before I badly needed it as a requirement for claiming important documents that requires two or more valid government IDs.


  1. Hi. Is the claiming process really that easy, I mean no questions asked?

  2. As long as you have your TIN number already, I bet it will be that easy to just go to the assigned person that will print your BIR TIN ID.

  3. Is it necessary to go to the BIR office of your current RDO or you can go to any BIR office near you?

  4. what kind of bank did you pay i lost my ID also

  5. Can be other person to process my TIN ID and claiming it,because of busy schedule and i had already my tin number?

  6. Hello baby, I believe that it is possible provided that you give that someone with a letter of authorization, your valid ID and a photocopy of it when he/she process the TIN ID for you. Make sure that he/she who process this for your also have a valid ID, just in case they require so.
