The best way to file and pay your City of Philadelphia taxes and water bills is always online. When you can’t, we encourage paying property taxes or water balances over the telephone.

Another option is mailing your forms and payments to the Department of Revenue. Different processing units within the Department use different P.O. Boxes for paper correspondence.

To make sure we get your form or payment, and process it in a timely matter, please use the right mailing address. Different tax types and forms have different P.O. Boxes:

We understand some taxpayers and water customers prefer in-person service. But as the City takes measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus in Philadelphia, face-to-face customer assistance, for now, is not an option.
