How To Get a TIN ID CARD (Manila)


It was year 2000 when I started to work in a company of Government-Owned and/or Controlled Corporations. But alas! I still do not have a TIN ID card. I know my Tax Identification Number though since I have been filing my Income tax Return every year.  I am just really fond of collecting ID’s--- government- issued preferably--- because it makes me feel like a good citizen (and complete!). Well, after 12 years, my friend/co-employee, Ferdie, and I decided to finally get a copy once and for all.


It was pretty simple. We headed straight to Bureau of Internal Revenue, Intramuros branch via taxi. Upon entering the building, the guard shot a copy of any of our IDs—for security reasons, of course.  We were asked what our agenda was and we told the guard that we would want to secure a copy of our TIN ID. We were then instructed to proceed to  2nd Floor. From there, we found the desk responsible for the issuance of the ID card. We were questioned if it was our first time to secure a copy. Yes, we said! Because you see, it is free of charge for first timers. But for reissuance, you have to pay 100pesos. And so we filled up a small form with the following information: Complete name (Last, middle, first), address, TIN number, Company, Company address, contact number. It is a MUST to know your TIN number. This would facilitate the person in-charge in verifying your identification.  Anyway, we were requested to come back after 2 weeks since they ran out of blank ID cards for printing. But they say in most cases, they could easily release your TIN ID if there are less applicants (and there’s the availability of materials). Overall, it took us less than 10 minutes to finish the process.

    1. Although any BIR branch can access your data file. They cannot process anything unless the TIN is under their jurisdiction. Meaning you cannot apply for a TIN Card in just any BIR Branch. It should be with the BIR Branch where your TIN is currently under. So if your in a location far from that BIR Branch, then you need to TRANSFER YOUR TIN to the BIR branch near your place of work or the BIR office where your current office is currently registered with.
