A tax number is issued by the tax office to all taxpayers who have to submit a tax return or who have already submitted one. Each tax number is clearly assigned to a taxpayer (spouses / partners who are assessed together have a common tax number).

The tax number should be given when filing the tax return and when communicating with the tax office.

Relocation: After a change of residence, the new competent tax office usually issues a new tax number.

When starting a commercial or freelance activity , the start-up office of the responsible Hamburg tax office is available. Here it is checked whether the assignment of a tax number is possible.

Important notes

Please note

The tax number should not be confused with the tax identification number that the Federal Central Tax Office (BZSt) has issued to natural persons since 2008 (see links).
