**Methods for procuring a TZ number:****1) **Use your Meuchedet number.

**2)** Use your Bituach Leumi number.

**3)** If you have an Israeli CC, call up the company to see what number they have on file for your account.

**4)** Certain other companies may have a TZ on file for your account, such as HOT or others. Call them up to find it out.

**5)** Ask an Arab taxi driver for a receipt

**6)** Make one up. Make up any 9 digit number. You start off by multiplying x2 every other number starting from the second number. If there is a remainder, add it together ie; 7*2=14= 1+4=5. Now add up all 9 digits together. If the sum is divisible by 10, it is a valid TZ. If not, tweak it until it is divisible by ten. The number 087451464, we would start off by multiplying 8*2=16= 1+6=7. Then 4*2=8, it's still a single digit so it stays at 8. After finishing that process, we end up with the numbers 0+7+7+8+5+2+4+3+4=40. 40 is divisible by 10, so it means that the number is valid.
