I refer to my letter of Apr 12, 2022 09:25:17 AM about your request under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch, for ITR.

In order for us to properly endorse and work further on your request, we need more information from you regarding your query. Kindly provide us the following details for us and email it at ana.marie.du@bir.gov.ph as these may contain sensitive information:
-	What ITR did you file? 
-	May we know where you filed your ITR, what RDO are you registered with?
-	Tax Return Confirmation Receipt (if your ITR was  filed online) 
Also, kindly provide us your contact number, two government-issued IDs and your selfie picture, as proof of your identity and email it at ana.marie.du@bir.gov.ph.

Please be informed that the ITRs that we have in our files are those returns that were filed and paid over-the-counter through our various Accredited Agent Banks; however, for no-payment returns that were filed through our eBIRforms and EFPS system, we do not have the hard copies of these returns on file. 
If you have been employed, your BIR Form 2316 should have been issued to you by your employer as it is mandated by law that every employer shall issue BIR Form No. 2316 to every employee before the close of such calendar year, or if employment is terminated, on the day on which the last payment of compensation is made. This should be filed as an attachment to your ITR.

Furthermore,  an employee whose income tax has been correctly withheld by your employer is not required to file an income tax return provided that such individual has only one employer and has been qualified for substituted filing for the taxable year - the Certificate of Withholding filed by the respective employers, duly stamped "Received" by the Bureau, shall be tantamount to the filing of income tax returns by said employees.

During the period of us awaiting your reply, your request will be put on hold. If we do not receive a reply on or before Jul 06, 2022 02:45:06 AM, your request will be closed.

We hope to hear from you at the soonest possible time.

Thank you.

FOI Officer
