Replacing Your Damaged or Lost BIR TIN Card

TIN Lost or Damaged

Your BIR ID is a government-issued ID that is honored by all government offices and private establishments. If you do not have a driver’s license, the BIR ID is the next best thing to show when you are asked for an identification (or your passport, if you bring it with you all the time). The BIR ID is perpetually valid but if it gets dilapidated over time or in case you lose it, you need to have it replaced immediately to avoid delays in your transactions such as filing income tax returns, VAT returns, and the like.

Last week, I shared the process on how to get a Tax Identification Number. Today, I am going to share the process on how to get a replacement TIN Card in case yours get lost or worn out.

How to apply for a new TIN card:

  1. Secure a copy of BIR Form 1905 (Application for Registration Information Update); you may download this from the BIR website at www.bir.gov.ph.
  2. Fill out the form, making sure that all entries are accurate and legible. If you are getting a replacement for a Lost BIR TIN Card, you need to secure a duly notarized Affidavit of Loss and attach this to your application. If you are getting a replacement for a dilapidated card, attach the old TIN Card to your application.
  3. Submit the form, along with the corresponding attachments, to the BIR District Office where your TIN is currently registered.
  4. Pay the replacement fee of P100 at the cashier; hold on to your receipt.

Some BIR offices are able to release the replacement card on the same day while others process all replacement cards by bulk. If the BIR office where you are getting your replacement card follows the latter, make sure you are given a phone number and a contact person that you can call when you want to make a follow up on the availability of your card. Do not lose the receipt of your payment, you will use that when claiming your card.

When you get your card, attach an ID photo and have it laminated.

  1. Hello po. may erasure po yung signature ng TIn Card ng friend ko. mag kakaproblema po ba ako nyan during transaction?

    1. It really depends on the establishment or agency that you are transacting with pero ideally, ang mga IDs dapat clear ang lahat ng entries, including the signature (also, is this your friend’s TIN Id or your TIN ID? :))

  2. Hello

  3. Paano pag yunng bday mo ay di natugma sa NSO mo? Dahil namali yung naisulat sa card, paano yun mababago at ma pag kakatulad sa NSO mo?

    1. Hi Yanami,

      Birth date lang ba ang mali?

      Kung birth date lang, pwede niyo itong ipa correct sa LCR kung saan naka rehistro yung birth certificate.

      Pero kung year of birth ang may discrepancy, kailangan ninyong manghingi ng tulong ng isang abogado para mapa-correct yung maling entry.

    1. Hi Mariane,

      Kung may TIN ka na dati, hindi ka na dapat kumuha pa ng bago ngayon. Magkakaron lang ng conflict sa mga records mo. Gamitin mo na lang kung ano yung unang na-assign na TIN sa iyo. Kung may kailangan kang ipa-correct na details mo sa BIR, pwede kang mag inquire sa hotline ng BIR na 981-8888.

    1. Pwede ka naman mag update sa BIR office na malapit sa iyo. Yung pag transfer ng pag remit ng tax mo ang dapat mong i inquire kung pwedeng office to office ang request ng transfer.

  34. i have a TIN NUMBER but never got hold of the card. yung employer ko dti ang nag apply ng TIN ko & i never knew if they got my id card. I can’t remember n kng aling employer since i transfered jobs many times already. i want to get/apply for a TIN card, what todo?

      1. I have a similar case with Rain but I am currently out of the country and not paying tax.
        I asked my sister to check if she can trace my ID number but the branch where I suspected I was registered didn’t get any result. Did the BIR have a centralized database they can check which branch a member is registered?
        Or does that mean my old company did not register my name?
        I want to get a new card but was told that I need to know my ID number or the branch where I was registered. Please advise. Thanks

      2. Hi Therisious,

        Any BIR office should be able to provide you with your TIN. Or you may inquire directly at the branch where you were supposedly registered. If they could not find your TIN, it may mean that you were not registered.

        MC

  35. Wala pong signature yung ID ko, nalaminate na po siya kaya diko na mapirmahan. Ano po gagawin ko?
