Your guide to applying for a digital TIN ID
The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) has recently introduced the digital taxpayer identification number (TIN) ID.
This means that Filipinos can now obtain their TIN IDs without having to queue up at revenue district offices.
Those who possess it no longer need to acquire a physical card.
Digital TIN IDs will be recognized as valid government-issued IDs for various government transactions, according to Revenue Memorandum Circular No. 120-2023.
Unlike physical TIN cards, the digital TIN ID does not necessitate a signature.
Its authenticity can be verified online through the BIR's Online Registration and Update System (ORUS) website by scanning the QR code with a mobile device camera.
Applying for a digital TIN ID is free of charge.
To obtain a digital TIN ID, update your email address by filling out a registration form specific to the Revenue District Office (RDO) where you are registered.
Submit Form S1905-Registration Update Sheet via email to the respective RDO or through the BIR’s eServices-Taxpayer Registration Related Application (TRAA) Portal.
Once completed, proceed with the online registration for the digital TIN ID and accomplish the following:
- Go to the ORUS website.
- Register for an account or log in to your existing account.
- Select the "Apply for Digital TIN ID" option.
- Upload a clear 1x1 photo with a white background, taken within the last six months and without a border.
- Fill in the required information.
After processing your application, you should be able to download your digital TIN ID. You can also choose to print it for your convenience.
Note that wearing sunglasses or other accessories such as headphones, wireless hands-free devices, or similar items covering the face is unacceptable unless medically necessary.
Uploading unrelated photos such as animals, artists, cartoons, or other individuals' photos, may result in penalties, according to BIR.
