Digital TIN ID now available; no need to visit BIR offices

You can now register for a digital TIN ID and it doesn’t require you to have a physical TIN card.

The Bureau of Internal Revenue has officially launched the online application for TIN ID. Now, TIN holders can register their digital IDs online – no need to line up at any revenue district offices.

According to the official post of BIR, the digital TIN ID comes with several key features, such as:

  1. The digital TIN ID serves as a reference for the holder’s Taxpayer Identification Number and as a valid government-issued identification document. It is acceptable in various government agencies, including LGUs, banks, employers, and more. Its authenticity is verifiable online via the ORUS system using the given QR code.
  2. Compared to physical TIN cards, the digital TIN ID doesn’t need a signature. Its authenticity is verifiable online through ORUS by scanning the QR code on the digital TIN ID. The QR code is scannable using a mobile device camera.
  3. Taxpayers who have TIN can apply for the digital TIN ID via ORUS. They must enroll their accounts on ORUS.
  4. The digital TIN ID is a permanent identification document. Both the physical TIN card and digital TIN ID remain valid, and holders do not need to secure a physical card if they already have a digital TIN ID.

“The Digital TIN ID system shows our commitment to providing Excellent Taxpayer Service. With this new system, we can eliminate the practice of fixers and scammers selling TIN online while giving taxpayers a convenient alternative in getting a TIN, instead of lining up at our Revenue District Offices,” said BIR Commissioner Romeo D. Lumagui Jr.

Taxpayers must comply with the guidelines when applying for the digital TIN ID. BIR’s guidelines on this system include clear, recent, and appropriate photos. If users upload inappropriate images, they may be subjected to a penalty.
