Good day, 

I am a contract of service employee and only have Form 2307 issued by my employer. 

I need to secure an Income Tax Return or Form 2316 relative to my visa application. How can I secure any of this with my Form 2307?

Will my Form 2307 suffice for the application? if not, what are other alternatives?

Your Request

You asked for Income Tax Return.

Response to Request

Please be advised that as job orders and/or individuals under contract of service, since there will be no employer-employee relationship, your registration may be classified as Self-Employed, Professional, and/or Sole Proprietorship.

Based on the registration type applicable, you may not be subjected to withholding tax on compensation (reflected through BIR Form 2316), however, you may be subjected to expanded withholding tax which will be withheld by your transacting party and reflected through BIR Form 2307.

As Self-Employed, Professional, and/or Sole Proprietorship, you are required to file for your tax returns such as Other Percentage Taxes or Value -Added Tax, whichever is applicable, and Income Tax Return

Furthermore, BIR Form 2307 may not be utilized in lieu of the Income Tax Return, thus, you should have filed an Income Tax Return on or before April 15 of every succeeding year following the close of the taxable year

Thank you

Respectfully yours,

FOI Officer
Public Information and Education Division
