Good day!
May I please request a copy of my ITR or form 2316 for FY 2018. I have lost my copy and my employer couldn't provide me with a copy as well since they have archived the records already. 

I really need this document as a supporting document to my visa application.

I appreciate your immediate assistance on this matter.
