The employer must issue PIT-11 before an employee who left the service (with notice, agreement of the parties or disciplinary) or retired during the year if the employee requests it. At the written request of the taxpayer, within 14 days of the date of this request, the employer (payer) shall prepare and submit taxpayer PIT-11 and submit to the tax office.
