Which is correct:
Thank you for reporting the office action that has issued.
Thank you for reporting the office action that has been issued.
To expand upon the two answers given…
The second sentence is “more correct” but neither sentence makes much sense. What is an office action and how is one issued? I gather that something happened in the office and you are thanking someone for reporting it.
To issue something means to supply it or distribute it. One cannot supply or distribute an action.
To describe something that happened in the office, we don’t call it an office action. That is just not a noun phrase that makes sense to native speakers. Since I don’t know what this event was, the following is the best sentence I can think of.
Thank you for reporting the event that happened in the office.
