Paying VAT/Tax on rent??? (Ankara)
Yesterday I went on a appartment hunt with a real estate agent. Visited many places in Cankaya and Hosdere area. I think I found what I wanted, but there is one strange thing with the rent.
On top of the rent here will be an 18% tax addition. Havent heard about that before, but the explanation was that that appartment was not for rent by a private person, but by a company, and therefore there was the 18% tax on top. I asked, but it was not possible not to pay that tax...
Have any of you heard about this before? and is this correct? if it is, is there any way to get that tax back?
Just to be clear, there are also monthly charges and heating charges, and that is no issue.
Thank you for your time.
