How to get TIN number for unemployed?

A TIN (Taxpayer Identification Number) is usually given to new taxpayers, such as individual taxpayers and juridical taxpayers. But how about if you’re not an income earner or if you’re an unemployed person, can you still get a TIN?
Aside from the taxpayers who are income earners, persons in need of TIN for E.O. 98 purposes are also eligible or qualified to acquire TIN from the BIR.
Persons registering under E.O. 98 are those individuals who are securing TIN to be able to transact with government offices, such as LTO, NBI, DFA, and other government agencies and instrumentalities. This order prompted the BIR to allow persons, who are required to provide TIN in their transactions with other government offices, to secure TIN from the bureau. Therefore, saying that only business owners, professionals, and employees are eligible to have TIN is not true.


1. Secure and fill out BIR Form 1904. Make a duplicate copy for your file – this should also be stamped received and signed by the BIR.
2. Attach copy of Birth Certificate or any document showing name, address, and birthdate
of the applicant.
3. Accomplish and file the BIR Form, together with the attachments, to the RDO having
jurisdiction over the place or residence of the applicant.
4. Ask when can you receive your TIN Card, and wait for its issuance.
Note: BIR will first check in their database if you have not been issued a previous and existing TIN before. So before you apply for a TIN, make sure that it’s your first time and you don’t have any previous TIN. Remember that possession of more than one Taxpayer Identification Number is criminally punishable pursuant to the National Internal Revenue Code of 1997, as amended.
