The tax ID number or code (Codice Fiscale often abbreviated C.F.) is a fiscal identification code, comprised of letters and numbers taken from your personal details, that identifies citizens when dealing with Italian public Authorities and other Administrations. It is required in Italy for all sorts of procedures (e.g. applying for a resident permit, opening a bank account, applying for the National Health Service card, renting a flat, buying a mobile phone SIM card, etc.).
Option 1: you can request it online ahead of time (recommended) if you are a EU citizen. Please follow the instructions you can download below:
PLEASE NOTE: print the form and sign it by hand then make a high quality scan (NOT a wonky, badly-lit photo with your phone!) and send it back to the Agency.
Option 2: (the only one available to non-EU citizens) The request may be submitted personally to any local tax office branch of the Italian Revenue Agency (Agenzia delle Entrate)
