What we do
The mission of the Department of Revenue is the timely, courteous, and prompt collection of all revenue due to the City of Philadelphia, and all tax revenue due to the School District of Philadelphia. This includes the billing and collection of water and sewer charges.
The Water Revenue Bureau provides all billing and collection functions for water and sewer charges. We ensure that the Philadelphia Water Department has the financial resources needed to provide reliable, high-quality water to Philadelphia residents, businesses, and communities.
The Department of Revenue also administers the City’s many tax and assistance programs.
We’re upgrading to a new payment system on November 1. As a result, some water bill payments may post later than normal. We will credit the accounts of any affected water customers with the correct balance. You don’t need to take any action, but can call (215) 685-6300 with questions.
