There are usually yearly taxes on property in Turkey. The value of the tax depends on the property size. It is also dependent on the property type and its location. Many online property tax calculators are used to figure out the total value of this tax. 

In Turkey, all property owners are expected to pay an additional yearly tax to the government. Since Turkish cities are divided into both small and big, the real estate tax in the country varies based on the property type and city size. For example, in Istanbul, the yearly property tax will be about 0.2% of the total value of the property. The annual property tax in Turkey is decided in the following way:

  • Big cities: In the big cities, residential properties have an annual tax of 2%. Others are farms (0.2%), lands (0.6%), and commercial properties (0.4%). 
  • Small cities: For small cities, the annual taxes on residential properties is 0.1%. Other taxes are for farms (0.1%), lands (0.3%), and commercial properties (0.2%).

Income Tax in Turkey

If you have a property that makes you income through regular rent, you will have to pay an income tax. This income tax is estimated by the accrued gross income. Also, there is a property sales tax to pay should you sell the residential or commercial property. In addition, there is usually no income tax after owing the property for five years. 

Inheritance or Gift Taxes in Turkey

If you have been gifted property or you inherited any piece of real estate, you will have to pay taxes on it. The taxes that you pay can be between 1% and 30%. The payment can be spread in two installments for three years.
