RDO stands for Revenue District Office. In BIR's official website, you'll learn about its functions and can even search for your own RDO (in case you forget). If you are suffering from self-diagnosed memory loss like me and couldn't remember your RDO at all, you can dial their customer service hotline 981-8888. Below are forms necessary for filing transfer of RDO and civil status update. You can either download them online or get them from your company representative handling government remittances.
|Form 1905 for transferring RDO and other forms of updating registration information|
|Form 2305 for updating civil status & filing for exemption|
Due to lack of time (and motivation) to visit my original RDO for the past three years, I am faced with this situation right now. Hey, don't give me that look. I know it's important, but there's a lot more urgent things to take care of than filing a leave from work and paying RDO 050 in Makati Ave a visit. I am currently working in Ortigas and our company representative will not be able to update my status being that my file is not registered in the current company's RDO (43A for East Pasig).
Anyway, to cut the long story short. Given that this has just become a situation more dire than it already was and I still couldn't accept the fact that I'll be braving the Makati traffic just for this, the resourceful and desperate little grown up woman in me started Googling and dialling BIR numbers and.. guess what? I learned that transferring from one RDO to another can be done via FAX now. Praise the Lord! But why did I learn this just now? Poor hubby of mine had to go at RDO 040 in Quezon Ave just to update his status and transfer. Oh well, some people just had to go through those things. Lol
Something note-worthy though is that not all RDOs accept faxed copy of Form 1905. Some would require that you go to their branch and file it personally. To be on the safe side, call your RDO first. You would have to get from them the fax number anyway. Hope your RDO is as considerate as mine :) I have sent them my filled out form last week and was advised that I call my new RDO after 5-6 business days to confirm if transfer was successful.
Happy filing fellow newlyweds! Or new hires! :)
