Fiscal code

The Codice Fiscale is a code made up of letters and numbers on the basis of your first name, family name, date and place of birth and it is used by the Public Administration to identify the citizens living in Italy.

All those living in Italy need to have their own.

The Codice Fiscale is necessary in order to enrol into Politecnico, to apply for the residence permit, to open a bank account, to enter into a tenancy agreement, to receive the payment of a scholarship, to earn a salary and carry out other procedures/activities.

In order to obtain your Italian Fiscal Code you will have to go to one of the local IVA Offices (Uffici Locali dell’Agenzia delle Entrate), bringing along your passport / Identity Card and a photocopy of it.

The IVA Offices in Torino are in:

Corso Bolzano, 30

Via Paolo Veronese, 199/A

Via Sidoli, 35

Via Padova, 78

These IVA Offices are open from Monday to Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and also from 2:30 to 3.30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

If the Codice Fiscale is lost or stolen, a duplicate can be requested at the local IVA office.

In September a desk of the Tax Office is available at the Department of International Affairs. The service is free of charge.
