Your Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) is an identifying number used for tax reporting purposes. We're required to collect this information when you sign up to our app, to comply with financial regulations. You can typically find your TIN on official government documents such as ID cards, passports, driving licenses, or financial documents like payslips, pensions, benefits, or tax relation documentation. A TIN may be called something different in your country but operate in the same way.
