Turkey - Taxation
A foreigner is considered a tax resident if he/she resides in Turkey for more than six months per calendar year or if he/she maintains a legal residence in the country. There are no special tax provisions for expatriates. Pensions and social security payments from abroad may be considered taxable income.
The Turkish tax year consists of one calendar year. Income tax is imposed on all taxable income at progressive rates after the benefit of specified deductions and allowances.
Taxable employment income includes all monies earned as a result of holding office and/or employment in Turkey. In addition, many non-cash (or in-kind) perks would be included as employment income including:
- Bonuses and commissions
- Overseas adjustments
- Cost of living allowances
- Housing allowances
- Education payments and home leave payments
