Dear Mr. Briones,

I refer to my letter of Sep 21, 2021 12:19:31 PM about your request under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch, for Latest income tax return BIR Form 2316.

In order for us to work further on your request, we need more information from you regarding your query. Kindly provide us the following details:
-	What ITR did you file? Was it 1700 or 1701? 
-	May we know where you filed your ITR, what RDO are you registered with?
-	Tax Return Confirmation Receipt (if your ITR were filed online) 

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. 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.

For your 2020 ITR,  if you have been employed and if your income tax has been correctly withheld by your employer you are no longer required to file an income tax return provided that you have  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.

Furthermore, your ITR and 2316 for  2021 is yet to be filed next year, hence, we cannot provide you the same.

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 Dec 14, 2021 05:34:53 AM, your request will be closed.

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

Thank you.

FOI Officer
