Addressing the problem of fixers, scammers

In a statement, BIR Commissioner Romeo D. Lumagui Jr. announced that the Digital Taxpayer Identification Number ID is now an additional feature of its Online Registration and Update System (ORUS).

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, he said.

Some of the features of the Digital TIN ID are:

1. The Digital TIN ID serves as a reference for the Taxpayer Identification Number of the taxpayer and as a valid government-issued identification document accepted in various government agencies, local government units, banks, employers, and other institutions. Its authenticity can be verified online via the ORUS system using the QR Code provided.

2. Unlike physical TIN cards, the Digital TIN ID does not require a signature. The authenticity of the Digital TIN ID can be verified online through the ORUS just by scanning the QR Code appearing in the Digital TIN ID using a mobile device camera.

3. Individual taxpayers with existing TIN can apply for the Digital TIN ID through ORUS. Users must enroll their accounts on the ORUS.

4. The Digital TIN ID is a permanent identification document. Both the physical TIN card and Digital TIN ID remain valid, and holders need not secure a physical card if they possess a Digital TIN ID.

Specific guidelines for uploading photos are provided. Clear, appropriate, and recent images that resemble the individual accurately should be followed. Photos that do not meet the specified requirements and specifications shall not be considered valid for transactions and shall not be accepted as a valid Digital TIN ID by the relying parties. Uploading of unrelated photos, such as animals, artists, cartoons, or other person’s photos, shall be subject to penalty.

Taxpayers applying for the Digital TIN ID must update their email address at the Revenue District Office where they are registered. They will be required to submit Form S1905 – Registration Update Sheet (RUS) via email to the concerned RDO or through BIR’s eServices - Taxpayer Registration Related Application (TRRA) Portal.

Note that the Digital TIN ID is FREE. Taxpayers availing of the services of online TIN ID assistance sellers risk getting invalid/fake TINs and wrong taxpayer type classification, which may impact their future transactions with the BIR.
