What Is RDO in BIR?
RDO, which stands for Revenue District Office, is a sector under the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) that keeps taxpayers’ records under its jurisdiction.
Although the BIR has over 100 RDOs in the Philippines, each taxpayer is assigned to only one RDO.
Since BIR registration records are not centralized (as every RDO keeps records of its registered taxpayers), you can access your information and transact only with the RDO where you are registered.
Thus, it’s essential to know the RDO where you’re registered.
What Is an RDO Code?
An RDO code is a three-digit numeric or alphanumeric code assigned to each RDO in the country.
The BIR uses these codes to track the amount of tax collection within a particular region and record and process tax returns, payments, and withholding taxes.
The RDO code matters only when filling out taxpayer tax forms, as it’s required for every transaction with the BIR.
How To Know Your BIR RDO Code: 3 Ways
Do you already have a TIN but don’t know or can’t remember your RDO code? You can retrieve or verify your correct RDO code in any of these three ways:
1. Check your BIR Form 1901/1902/1903/1904/1905
Look for a copy of the BIR form you filed when you applied for a TIN.
If you’re an employee, you may request a copy of your BIR Form 1902 from the HR department of the employer that handled your TIN registration.
However, if you previously filed for an RDO transfer, you need to find your updated RDO code written on your copy of the BIR Form 1905.
Once you’ve gotten your BIR form, you can find your RDO code somewhere at the upper right of the document.
2. Contact the BIR hotline
You may inquire about your RDO code by calling the BIR’s Customer Assistance Division.
The BIR provides the RDO code over phone calls rather than email for security purposes. When you call the BIR contact center, you’ll be asked for your full name, TIN, birthdate, mother’s maiden name, and other details to verify your identity.
Here are the numbers to call when you need to know your RDO code:
3. Visit the nearest RDO
This method for verifying your RDO code may be inconvenient, but it’s a sure way to get the necessary information, especially if you can’t contact the busy BIR hotlines.
Go to any RDO and request a TIN verification slip. Please complete it with your full name, birth date, and address. If you’re a married woman, you should indicate your maiden name.
Present your accomplished slip to the BIR officer, who will stamp it and indicate your TIN, RDO code, and location.
