The Personal Tax Identification Number, also called TIN , is an 11-digit series of numbers that a person receives permanently from birth. The TIN is not changeable, unique and permanent. The basic requirement for obtaining a TIN is a permanent residence within Germany. Foreigners receive their TIN (Tax Identification Number) from the Federal Central Tax Office after registration at the registration office.
Where can I find the tax ID?
The TIN can be found on the employment tax statement, income tax assessment, or the information letter of your tax office. If you can not find your TIN, please request the number at the Federal Central Tax Office online.
How do I know that this is the TIN?
These are the specifications of the Federal Central Tax Office:
- 11 digits
- First digit must not be 0
- in the first 10 digits one digit may occur exactly two or three times. If that is the case, no other digit may occur more than once.
