Personal Tax Code

“Codice fiscale” is an alphanumeric code of 16 characters issued for free by the “Agenzia delle Entrate” (Revenue Agency) to identify Italian citizens and foreign residents.

You need to have your own “codice fiscale” to:

  • open a bank account
  • sign any type of contract (rental, phone line, …)
  • register at the National Healthcare Service (SSN)

Students can refer to the Italian Representative in their Countries of residence in order to obtain their tax code. Should it be necessary to address the “Agenzia delle Entrate” for any reason, here are the contacts of the main office:

You must bring your passport. If you are from a non-EU country, you may be asked to show your residence permit receipt.

At the “Ufficio delle Entrate” you will be asked to fill in a specific form for the issue of your "codice fiscale". You’ll need to show you passport or other ID. Please make sure that your name is the same on every form. Keep it in the same order and always use the same surname, if you have more than one.
