In this regard, the lawyer, “Majd Tabaa”, a real estate consultant who resides in Istanbul, told Almas Property: “Extracting the tax number is very easy from any tax department in Turkey, and requires the person’s presence in order to fill out the required forms and papers. Which includes information such as the passport number, the residence address, and signature, and after it is handed over to the concerned employee, the tax number is obtained,” stressing that “the procedures of extracting the tax number are very fast and only takes a few minutes.”

He added, “In the event of losing the tax number, the Tax Department is asked to retrieve the number again, and all this is done easily and quickly.”

Almas Property assures its clients that “extracting the tax number in Turkey does not require a residence permit, as it is sufficient to have a passport or a copy of a rental contract notarized by the notary.”

“Almas Property” draws attention to the fact that those whose passports have expired, and those who do not have a document that proves their residential address in detail, are not entitled to obtain a “tax number”.
