A PIN is a unique personal identification number for the purpose of first time login. Effective 2016, online PIN application is no longer available.

A PIN can only be obtained at the nearest LHDNM branch or UTC. Bring along your identity card or passport and fill in Form CP55D (PIN No. Application Form) which can be obtained at the counters.

To avoid making multiple trips to the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia office, make sure you visit the ezHASiL official website to understand the type of service you need and its requirements.
