All taxpayers who want to seek a new tax identification number or tin number must fill out a new tin number application form (TIN).
Obtaining a Tax ID Number in the Philippines
In the Philippines, the most essential form of official identification is a TIN. This kind of identification has the benefit of not having an expiry date.
When applying for a tax identification number, the following actions must be taken:
Bring the necessary documentation to the local Bureau of Internal Revenue, such as a PSA birth certificate or a valid ID.
Inquire about help in identifying the correct kind of TIN application form.
Fill out and return the given TIN form.
Wait for the paperwork to be processed and the TIN to be issued.
Make a request for a TIN ID card.
You may either wait for the card or come back the following day to pick it up.
A TIN is often supplied to:
Individual taxpayers who are new
New legal taxpayers
Individuals with no income may also get an E.O. 98 TIN from the Bureau of Internal Revenue. The goal of registering under E.O. 98 is to have the authority to do business with government agencies and offices. As a result, both working and jobless persons may apply for TINs via the Bureau of Internal Revenue.
Individuals that apply for a new TIN are not restricted to the following categories:
When a person applies for a TIN, the Bureau of Internal Revenue first checks its system to ensure that the applicant has not already obtained a TIN. The possession of more than one TIN is forbidden under the modified National Internal Revenue Code of 1997; consequently, it is critical to check that persons do not already hold TINs throughout the application process.
The eRegistration service provided by the Bureau of Internal Revenue is the most convenient method to get a TIN online. This eRegistration provides useful features such as:
TIN issue through the internet
The option to pay the registration fee over the internet
The Certification of Registration provision
The Bureau of Internal Revenue delivers the TIN registration status and confirmation by email, thus applicants must have valid email addresses before enrolling.
An employee who wishes to get a new TIN must do so via his or her company. In this case, the employer must set up an eRegistration account for the employee and fill out the application form. If the employer does not already have an account and does not desire to establish one, he or she must finish the registration process offline. He or she must go to either the employer’s Revenue District Office or the employee’s local Revenue District Office to do so.
It is vital to remember that the eRegistration is exclusively for the following people:
Individuals with a mixed income
This indicates that if someone applies through the eRegistration, he is pretending to be a professional or a person with a mixed income. The Internal Revenue Service will treat the person as a corporation and require him to file tax returns and pay taxes. As a result, if a person registers online but does not submit a tax return, he is in violation and may face penalties from the Bureau of Internal Revenue. These offences will stay open until the person pays the penalty and ends the case.
A TIN should be maintained on hand since it is required while working, doing business, and receiving compensation.
Those who are presently jobless and seeking TINs for bank accounts should attend the Bureau of Internal Revenue’s Revenue District Office to prevent problems.
