Did you know that you can obtain a tax identification number, also known as a TIN number, online? This article will show you how to get or apply for a TIN number online in 2022 through the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) eReg.
The BIR TIN number online registration is one example of how the Internet has made it easier and more convenient for Filipinos to transact with the government.
Currently, only registered employers or corporate taxpayers can use the BIR’s eRegistration (eReg) system to secure the TINs of their new employees (without existing TIN).
Previously, the online registration service was also available to other taxpayer types, such as self-employed individuals and applicants under Executive Order 98. The BIR may restore that functionality in the future. However, for the time being, these people must register to BIR manually at their assigned RDO.
Employers, once again, can issue TINs to their employees via the BIR eReg system. They must, however, first create an account in the online system.
Part I: Creating a BIR eReg Account
Here are the steps for setting up a BIR eReg system account.
- Go to the BIR eRegistration website.
- On the User Menu on the left side of the page, select Create Employer User Account.
- Read the User Agreement. Select the Agree button.
- Enter your email address, full name, employer TIN, and employer branch code (the last three digits of your TIN, not the RDO code).
- Enter the captcha code and press Submit.
When you click the Submit button, you will be taken to the eReg Login page, where you will see a message confirming that your account was successfully created.
- BIR will send you an email containing your account username.
Once you’ve received your username, you can move on to obtaining TINs for your employees (see next section).

Part II: Getting TIN for Employees Using the BIR eReg System
Employers can now log in to issue Taxpayer Identification Numbers (TINs) to their employees after creating BIR eReg accounts. Here’s how:
- Visit the BIR eRegistration website.
- Enter your registered username (the one you received via email) and email address.
If your username and email address are both correct, you will receive an email with your password. If you can’t find the email in your inbox, check your Spam folder.
- Fill out the Basic Taxpayer Data Form with the following information: the employee’s name, birthdate, name extension, email address, civil status, and gender.
Important note: Taxpayers who do not have a middle name must obtain their TINs in person at the Revenue District Office in question (RDO)
See BIR rules on Filling-up the Basic Taxpayer Data Form below:
- Enter the captcha code and click Submit.
- Read the eReg Terms of Service Agreement then click Agree
- Provide the necessary taxpayer information, such as citizenship, local residence address, four-digit ZIP code, phone number, and foreign address (if applicable). To proceed, click Continue.
- Click Continue again at the bottom of the Tax Types section (no need to change anything since the tax type codes are fixed).
- Select civil status and enter the other necessary data such as spouse information and number and names of dependents. Click Next.
- Fill in the necessary data in the Employer Information section, then wait for the system to retrieve additional information. Click Next.
- Fill out the Other Information section with the requested data, then click Next.
- Before submitting, double-check the information on the Confirmation Page and make any necessary changes. When you’re finished, scroll down and click Confirm.
- Get the generated TIN and copy it.
You can download and print the BIR Form 1902 and Confirmation Page. You can also edit the BIR Form 1902 in Microsoft Excel.
Important Reminder: After you log out, the system will provide you a new password. Use this password the next time you access the system.
Note: There is an advisory to Taxpayer-Employers by BIR as of the moment. Read below.
“The eReg System is currently unavailable to employer users due to system maintenance. Employers may not receive the password and advise to facilitate the application for TIN of their employees to the Revenue District Officers (RDO) where the employer is registered. In case of Large Taxpayer-Employers, application shall be submitted to the RDO having jurisdiction over the place of business where the employer’s Head Office or Branch is located and where the employee will be assigned.
Please be guided accordingly.”
