How to get your Turkish tax number (vergi kimlik)

There has been a lot of activity about this lately as Intasure have been contacting their clients concerning their tax number.

All property owners will have been issued a tax number from the Bodrum or Milas tax office. Many of you will not have made a note as the solicitor may have held back this number only to charge you for retrieving it later as they never miss a trick to make more money.

Luckily there is an online service to retrieve you number at the government website :

This is the page you will be faced with:

You need to add:

father forenames

Then select Yutdışı

then add your year of birth (ie 1959)

(note, the chances are they will have used a Turkish i which is ı if you have an i in your name. See note below if you do not know how to do this.

It took me several attempts to get my number. First I did not know I had to add the Turkish ı, then they left my fathers middle name out, so I had to run multiple variations until I got the result. You may well need to do this as getting your number in the first hit is unlikely, so you need to be patient.


Option 1: use an online virtual keyboard and copy and paste the Turkish letters.

Option 2: Install a Turkish keyboard onto you PC. If you have a Mac then you need to search for how to do this on the net. If you tyep a lot of Turkish this is a good option. If not, the 1st option may be the best one for you.

Simon. Just a question in the date of birth bit. It only allows 4 characters so what format should the date be in?

Hi John. Thanks for raising that. My error, as the exact translation is YEAR OF BIRTH and I have altered the text.
