Tourist residence permit and tax
 
If I get a tourist residence permit but stay in Turkey for less than 180 days in the calendar year - will I be considered a tax resident?

Why not try it and see what happens!

This is taken from the UK government website
You're automatically resident if either: you spent 183 or more days in the UK in the tax year. your only home was in the UK - you must have owned, rented or lived in it for at least 91 days in total - and you spent at least 30 days there in the tax year.

Are you talking about the Dual Tax Agreement between Turkey and the UK? If so, you have to apply to the UK tax office to be declared Non Resident. You have to prove yourself permanently resident in Turkey, by providing your stamped and verified Turkish Tax Card, last UK Tax Coding, Resident Permit, and several other documents that I can't remember. Once you are declared non resident in the U.K., you can only stay in the U.K. for so many days in a year - 90 I believe? The forms can be downloaded, and it takes several months for the process to be completed.

A Resident Permit on its own does NOT remove your U.K. tax liability.

Be sure to Google and read your country's tax treaty with Turkey. Turkey has them with many different countries. By default, ALL worldwide income is taxable in Turkey if you become a tax resident, that is, unless the tax treaty between Turkey and your country says something is only taxable in your home country.

For example, I'm from the USA, and my income comes from a government pension and rental property in the USA. Because of the tax treaty between Turkey and the USA, both of those sources of income are only taxed in the USA, and are not taxed in Turkey.

My situation is that I am a perpetual traveller and not a tax resident of any country, so I would not have a double taxation treaty to benefit from.
No need to discuss this point as I already have been professionally advised on it.

Does this mean that, even if I stay less than 180 days in the country, applying for the tourist residence permit would "domicile" me in Turkey and make me a Turkish tax resident?

I don't understand "tourist residence permit".

I think they mean visa. What earnings would you have in Turkey to pay tax there?

Tourist residence means Short term residence permit. If we earn money in Turkey then we are due to pay tax in Turkey.

I want to stay in Turkey longer than 90 days out of 180 this year - it seems the only way to do this is to apply for this tourist residence permit (edit - I can't link without 15 posts but it's the third result if you google "turkey tourist residence permit")

Does anybody know if (as somebody currently not a resident of any country and thus with no double taxation treaty) applying for this permit would "domicile" me in Turkey and make me a Turkish tax resident?
