Guide and Steps On How To Get a TIN From BIR If You Are Unemployed

People work hard and earn money which ideally they would like to retain for themselves. However, a significant portion of this usually has to be given to the state. In my view, it is right that people pay their fair share of taxes.

Nevertheless, citizens should be obliged to pay taxes to the government for a number of reasons. They should accept that the taxes they pay help the government offer them the public services all over the country.

These public services are things such as the construction of roads, bridges, public hospitals, parks and other public services.

The same tax money helps the country’s economy to be stable. Through taxes, the government can pay off its debts. In short, tax money is a way of ensuring that people have comfortable livelihoods.

Speaking of tax, here in Philippines a Tax Identification Number (TIN) is one of the most required valid ID to present in any subject to purpose such as processing documents, applying for a job and others.

Moreover, a Tax Identification Number (TIN) is assigned to an individual who will soon be paying taxes, either as an employed or self-employed income-earner.

On the other hand, what if you are unemployed? Can you still for TIN?

Definitely the answer is YES.

Under Executive Order 98 (E.O. 98), persons transacting with government offices may be issued a TIN should this be required of them. Common examples of government agencies that require TIN are LTO, NBI, and DFA. The person requesting for the TIN may or may not be employed, self-employed, or a licensed professional; he or she could be unemployed and still be given a TIN if the reason for application falls under the provisions of E.O. 98.

Presented below is How to get a TIN if you are unemployed:

Secure and fill out the BIR Form 1904. Make two copies – submit one copy to the BIR and have the other copy stamped received; keep this as your copy.

Attach a copy of your PSA Birth Certificate or any document that bears your name, address, and birthdate.

Submit the accomplished form and attachments to the RDO that has jurisdiction over the applicant’s residence.

The BIR will advise you when you can come back to claim your TIN card.

Note: The BIR will check to confirm that you have not been issued a TIN in the past. Remember that it is unlawful to be assigned two TINs – this is considered a criminal offense and is punishable pursuant to the National Internal Revenue Code of 1997.

In conclusion, even though many people think that they should not pay taxes, that money is useful to the stability of any country. Therefore, people should not avoid paying taxes as it may affect the country’s economy and services that it provides. Paying tax is not only in the form of deduction from your salary, it can be in the form of purchasing something.
