The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) on Thursday announced that taxpayers can now avail of their digital tax identification number (TIN) ID.

In a memorandum circular release, BIR Commissioner Romeo Lumagui said there's no need to line up anymore in revenue district offices (RDO) as the digital TIN ID can be availed online for free through the bureau's Online Registration and Update System (ORUS).

"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," Lumagui said in a statement.


Users must first update their email address by submitting a Registration Update Sheet via email to the concerned Revenue District Office where they are registered or through BIR’s eServices - Taxpayer Registration Related Application Portal.

Once this has been sorted out, taxpayers can then create their ORUS account, log in from there, and follow the step-by-step registration process.

Users will be required to submit clear photos of themselves to get the digital TIN ID. Those who will upload unrelated photos, such as animals, artists, cartoons or other person’s photos, shall be subject to penalty.

The bureau said that the digital TIN ID does not require a signature as it can be verified by scanning the QR code in ORUS.
