Step 1: Register for a tax file (for first-time taxpayers only)
First, you’ll need to apply for an income tax reference number at any LHDN office. Or, you can register online via e-Daftar. Here is how to do it online:
- On e-Daftar, click Online Registration Form to fill up your personal information. Remember to keep your application number once you’ve sent the application, as LHDN may ask you for it when you go to get your PIN number.
- After sending in your application, you will need to upload a picture of your IC within 14 days.
- Finally, go to the LHDN office to get your PIN number. You’ll use the PIN number to register/sign in at LHDN’s e-Filing website.
There is the option of getting your pin online, but most people that we have spoken to have been unsuccessful. If you have any information for us to add, do let us know here.
