REVENUE MEMORANDUM ORDER NO. 22-2016 issued on June 1, 2016 prescribes the
policies and procedures for the issuance of Electronic Certificate Authorizing Registration
Effective June 1, 2016 the issuance of manually-prepared Certificate Authorizing
Registration (CAR) as well as the generation and issuance of a Tax Clearance in the Integrated
Tax System shall be stopped. The use of BIR Form No. 2313-CAR shall be discontinued and all
unused CARs which are still in the possession of the Chief, Administrative & Human Resource
Management Division and Revenue District Officers (RDOs)/Large Taxpayers (LT) Division
Chief shall be surrendered and duly accounted for to the Chief, Accountable Forms Division.
The facilities of the eCAR System thru the BIR website as well as the generation and
printing of the same shall be used in the processing, review and approval of requests for
issuance/re-issuance of eCAR. The eCAR shall be printed on a security paper, an accountable form
with security features and bar code.
All manually-issued CARs that are outstanding and not yet presented to the Registry of
Deeds and other manually-issued expired CARs that are due for revalidation are no longer valid
and shall be cancelled and replaced with an eCAR.
eCARs shall have a validity of one (1) year reckoned from the date of issuance, for
purposes of presenting the same to the Registry of Deeds. Otherwise, the eCAR shall be deemed
permanently expired and therefore of no force and effect. The RDOs/ LT Division Chiefs shall
issue a new eCAR to the taxpayer in case the latter fails to present the eCAR to the Registry of
Deeds within the one (1) year validity period. In case of lost eCAR within the validity period, the
RDOs/ LT Division Chiefs shall not issue a new eCAR but, instead, shall reprint and issue the
same eCAR to the requesting taxpayer. On both cases, a certification fee of One Hundred Pesos
(P100.00) shall be charged to the taxpayer/authorized representative for each released eCAR
issued/reprinted, after affixture of Fifteen Pesos (P15.00) Documentary Stamp Tax on Certificates.
The requirements for the replacement/reissuance/reprinting of eCAR are enumerated in the Order.
For transfers of titled real properties, the RDO shall issue one (1) eCAR per property
covered by Original Certificate of Title/Transfer Certificate of Title/Condominium Certificate of
Title. For transfers of untitled real properties, one (1) eCAR shall be issued for each tax declaration,
including the improvements thereon. However, for transfers of personal properties, a separate
(single) eCAR shall be issued for all personal properties per transfer document (e.g., Deed of Sale,
Deed of Donation, etc.).
For transfer of personal properties, e.g. Cash in Bank, wherein the taxpayer requests for
issuance of separate eCAR for each bank account, the RDO shall issue instead a certified true copy
of the eCAR for presentation to the concerned bank. A certification fee and Documentary Stamp
Tax shall be required from the requesting taxpayer for each certified eCAR.
The eCARs issued by the RDO other than the district office where the property is located
shall no longer be authenticated/countersigned by the RDO/Head, One-Time Transaction
(ONETT) Team having physical jurisdiction over the property/ies. The Register of Deeds shall
validate the eCAR details on the Land Registration Authority-BIR CAR Verification System
(LRA-BIR CVS) to authenticate the eCAR copy of the taxpayer. The RDO/LT Division shall
continue to maintain the official CAR Registry Book, Annex H of Revenue Memorandum Order
(RMO) No. 15-2003.
The submission of “Monthly Report on CARs Prepared/Issued and
Collections/Assessments from Real Property Transactions (Annex A10)” to Assessment Service
as prescribed in RMO No. 29-2011 shall be discontinued. However, the monthly report “List of
Requisitioned Certificate Authorizing Registration”, as prescribed in the aforementioned RMO,
shall still be submitted to the Assessment Performance Monitoring Division in soft copy.
