Request for BIR 2316 record

Requested from BIR by M. Nava at 03:19 PM on Apr 13, 2022.
Purpose: Needed requirement for my new employer
Date of Coverage: 08/05/2014 - 05/31/2016
Tracking no: #BIR-923809304493

Nava 03:19 PM, Apr 13, 2022

Hi! I would like to request my BIR 2316 record from 08/05/2014 - 05/31/2016. 

This is requested by my new employer as one of the requirement. I tried to request it from my previous employer but the agency is already closed here in our area and I have no direct contact with their personnels. 

Even though I was employed for year 2019 - 2021, my employer during this years did file BIR 2316 for me because according to them, due to train law, I am not subject to witheld tax.

Thank you and God Bless

Dear Ms. Nava,

I refer to my letter of Apr 13, 2022 03:19:29 PM about your request under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch, for Request for BIR 2316 record.

Kindly clarify from your new employer if what they are asking from you is the BIR Form 2316 for the past years as we have the impression that it is for the current year for them to do the year-end adjustment. Your new employer will take into consideration your income from previous employment and your tax liability will be based on your total income for the year.

Thus, you may directly request this from your employer as they are the main source of such documents. It is also 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.

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 08, 2022 12:45:04 AM, your request will be closed.

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

Thank you.

FOI Officer
