Q: May I know what is Tax Identification Number (TIN)? How to obtain?
A: The Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (IRBM) assigns a unique number to persons registered with the Board. This unique number which is the TIN is known as “Nombor Cukai Pendapatan” or Income Tax Number. This number is issued to persons who are required to report their income for assessment to the Director General of Inland Revenue.
Individuals are not automatically issued with TIN. TIN is only issued either on request, on registration exercise by the tax authority or on employment when their employer request for their registration.
