2 minutes read

The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) in the Philippines has introduced a Digital Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) ID, aiming to streamline the process of obtaining a TIN without the need to physically visit revenue district offices.

Now, you can easily apply for or update your TIN through the Bureau of Internal Revenue’s website called the Online Registration and Update System (ORUS) at Here’s what you need to know about the new Digital TIN ID:


Online Registration and Update System (ORUS)

1. Handy Identification:

This Digital TIN ID acts as an official ID accepted by various government agencies, banks, employers, and others. You can verify its legitimacy online by scanning the QR Code provided.

2. No Signature Required:

Unlike the usual TIN card, this digital version doesn’t need a signature. To verify it, just scan the QR code with your phone through ORUS.

3. Accessibility for Existing TIN Holders:

If you already have a TIN, you can get this digital version by signing up on ORUS.

4. Permanent ID:

The Digital TIN ID is a permanent document, so if you have it, you don’t need a physical card.

5. Updating Information:

If you’re applying for the Digital TIN ID, make sure to update your email address at your local Revenue District Office (RDO). You can do this by filling out a form and submitting it online, along with clear and recent photos of yourself.

Remember, this Digital TIN ID is free. Be careful of online scammers offering to sell you a TIN, as it might be fake and cause problems with the BIR in the future.

The BIR Commissioner, Romeo Lumagui Jr., highlighted that this new system aims to stop people from selling fake TINs online and provides a more convenient way for everyone to get a TIN without having to visit government offices.
