A newborn baby with permanent or temporary residence in Slovenia is entered into the tax register ex officio. This means that the entry is made by a finance office on its own initiative. The parents receive a certificate of the newborn baby’s tax identification number by post within approximately one month of the baby’s birth.
If you would like to receive a tax identification number certificate immediately after the birth of your child (e.g. you need such a certificate to claim a tax allowance for a dependent family member), you can obtain it at any finance office except at the General Finance Office and at the Special Finance Office. You must have with you a completed DR-02 form, along with the instructions available on the website (available in Slovenian, Italian, Hungarian, English and German languages; the form can also be obtained at the finance office), a valid identification document (identity card or passport) and the child’s birth certificate. In this case, you receive the certificate of the newborn baby’s tax identification number immediately or by post within a few days.
Application for registration of a natural person in the tax register (DR-02 form) – newborn baby with permanent or temporary residence in Slovenia
A newborn baby without permanent or temporary residence in Slovenia is entered into the tax register by the financial office on the basis of application for entry into the tax register (DR-02 form) submitted by a natural person – parents after they receive a personal/identification document for baby in the country of residence.
The tax identification number consists of eight digits; seven digits are randomly selected and the eighth is calculated using a special module.
