The proposed Constitutional Amendment most recently approved by Congress as required is the Washington DC Voting Rights Amendment. It would have have given the District of Columbia the same rights as a state regarding voting representation in the U. S. Senate and House of Representatives and regarding Presidential elections. Congress approved the proposal in August 1978. By the time it passed a self-imposed expiration date in 1985 only 16 of the required 38 states had ratified it.

When was the sixteenth amendment ratified?

Never. In order for an amendment to be properly ratified, it must be ratified in its EXACT language, by 3/5 of all of the states. While it seems that enough states did ratify a variation of the amendment in some form or another, it was never ratified in its exact language by enough states. This did not, however, prevent it from being added to the Constitution, and becoming de facto "law". It was never properly ratified. There are various institutions offering enormous cash rewards to anybody who can prove otherwise, as of yet, no takers.

Because to amend the Constitution you have to propose an amendment in Congress, then it has to be formally passed by Congress. After being passed by Congress, the amendment is sent to the states to be ratified, but it has to be ratified by 3/4 of the states within a 10 year limit, otherwise the amendment is not added to the list of amendments
