The majority of invoices today are thermal, which blur easily due to friction. What should the public do if the uniform invoice becomes blurry or damaged and it turns out that it has won the lottery? If there is an issue, according to Ministry of Finance, you only need to find the original winning invoice and reprint it.
According to the Regulations Governing the Use of Uniform, as long as the profit-making enterprise that issued the invoice proves that the receipt slip and stub slip received by the public, and the items recorded on it do exist and match, they can redeem the prize. On the tax portal, check the unified invoice issuing bank number from the online service, or contact the Ministry of Finance and the National Taxation Bureau to inquire about the business operator who issued the winning invoice, the registered name and address, and contact the business operator to provide a note after checking. An electronic invoice with the words "reprinted" is sufficient.
