I have been told that the Taxpayer\'s Identification Number (TIN) is not required for foreigners. This may not apply at all LTO\'s, the requirements for Foreigners to have TIN\'s is very confused at the moment.

When I got my driverslicense 3 years ago they didn\'t ask a Tin number . Last month I had to renew it and they wouldn\'t do it without a Tin number. New rules they said. So I had to go to the BIR to get one and that went very quick.†

My local BIR office refused to give me aTIN, because they said I did not have an income from the Philippines. The International Tax Affairs Division (ITAD) needed it for my application for double taxation relief. ITAD are a part of BIR!!!!! This has been ongoing for almost two months with my local BIR refusing to answer the letters I have written to them at the request if ITAD. Last week ITAD said they would sign my form without the TIN, but I have not receivd it yet, so maybe they have changed their mind. In the past people have had their Double Taxation form signed without a TIN and others have obtained a TIN without the slightest problem. The answer is.......this is the Philippines† ::)

You are right Colin, only in The Philippines. I had the TIN number in only 5 minutes and the officer helped me to fill in and I have no income (only expenses ;D) in The Philippines.† That was the BIR office in Makati City.

The BIR here in Bacolod City would not change her Tax ID card to her married name because she was not employed. Like Colin said, \"Only In The Philippines\".....God Bless...
Thank you...God Bless...

I can finaly report that I received my signed double taxation form WITHOUT a TIN. Maybe I will have to start all over again if the LTO here insist on a TIN for renewing my driving licence, but that is nearly thre years away.

I should add that I was advised that TIN wouldn\'t be needed for drivers license in Tagbilaan by a normally reliable source......this despite a close friend of the being senior official there....
seems like officials from Cebu drop in from time to time to either stop \"short cuts\" in new procedure OR be there for piece of the action.....

I will be going to the LTO on Monday 5/11/09 in Alalbang to renew my drivers license. It looks like what Graywolf said is all I needed. I will let the forum know what happened. TO BE CONTINUED:

RENEWED: Philippines Driver\'s License. I went to the Alabang LTO and picked up an application for license renewal on Friday. The next Monday wife and I went back arriving about 7:30 am, opens at 8:00 am. 1st in line and with app, copy of passport, passport w/BB stamp on same, no official receipt (lost it) I was able to get the renewed license in about 2 hours. No TIN no ACR just proof that I have been in country and will be here for a while. My wife did all the talking LOL. One little aside to this is that if you have blood pressure over 130/80 they might not find you fit for the license. If you are on meds for high blood take them before you get there. Piece of cake. Happy motoring.

When I last renewed my licence, the doctor asked me if my blood pressure was OK, and I said yes, I had it tested recently and it has always been good. He did not bother to check.

Underage Licensee
« Reply #13 on: July 01, 2009, 04:04:37 PM »
Hi friends! Do anyone of you experienced or know the new regulation penalizing underage licensees who submitted wrong date of birth when they first acquire a license? It states that they should be suspended for one year and their licenses should be revoked.† Are there any penalties aside from it? Thanks..
