Dear Mr. Bautista,

I refer to my letter of Jan 26, 2022 08:35:18 AM about your request under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch, for 2021 ITR Request.

In order for us to properly endorse and work further on your request, we need more information from you regarding your query. If you are asking for ITR, kindly provide us with the following details (for 2020) and email them at ana.marie.du@bir.gov.ph. as this contains sensitive information
-What ITR form did you file? 
-Where did you file 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. 

However, we would also like to suggest that if you know where you filed your ITR, you may directly request it to the concerned RDO, bring the duplicate/xerox copy with you for they may also need to validate and determine if you are the rightful owner of the documents requested as these are sensitive information and are bound by the Data Privacy Act of 2012 and Sec 270 of the NIRC. Furthermore, your ITR for 2021 is yet to be filed on or before April 15,hence, we can not 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 Apr 20, 2022 02:49:20 AM, your request will be closed.

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

Thank you.
