Italian tax code number

The Italian tax code number (codice fiscale) is an alphanumeric code, composed of letters and numbers: according to Italian Law, the tax code identifies you in all dealings, not only of fiscal nature, with the Italian public authorities and other administrations. The tax code is strictly personal. Non-EU and EU students must obtain an Italian tax code number in order to:

  • enrol in the Italian public health service (Servizio Sanitario Nazionale, SSN)
  • be able to open a bank account
  • be employed
  • start a business 

To obtain the tax code number, students must go to the Italian Revenue Agency which is in Via Ippolito Nievo, 36 – 00153 – Rome (tel. 06 583191). The office is open Monday and Friday from 7:45 am to 13:30 pm; Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from from 7:45 am to 15:30 pm.

Students have to bring:

  • a photocopy of the passport
  • a photocopy of the visa (for non-EU students)
  • the request for the permit of stay (for non-EU students)
  • a copy of the rental contract in Rome
  • the request form duly compiled
