the quest for the illusive TIN

...and now here i am working on my third job when this hideous complication blocked my peace of mind. i'm currently running problems with my BIR TIN(tax identification number).

you see, i registered last year in their online eTIN portal. that's when my problem started and i only realized it on my application for TIN update. now it's a huge headache.

i can't get into the details in here, but please if you guys know anyone who can help me please do leave a message at i'm only having problems with the paper forms they gave me. i can't understand a thing(form 2550Q and others) and the staff were so unfriendly when i asked for assistance.

When I applied for a TIN, the reason I gave was it was required for a driver's license.

Maybe you could reply anew and use that excuse too?

I dont have any problem about getting the TIN since I was the one who process it personally.. I didnt mind about getting it online or if the company will process it on my behalf... Mas advisable na ikaw na mismo ang mag processo sa BIR pra alam muna kaagad ang problema at ma check mo yung status kung na pina process na ba nila kaagad yung application mo, at then para ma ask mo sila kung when mo pwede mukuha and then they'll give you the date.. I applied for TIN then after one week nakuha ko na yung official TIN ko.. :-) Gud luck!

OFW kasi ako, and we dont pay taxes in pinas... but i think it's not that complicated to get or sort out one...

I can't imagine to land a second job. It's my first job I have now. I want to resign in January, but wanna make sure a new job awaits me.

this is what we get from technological development from a bureau that isn't ready for technological development.
