Important COVID-19 notice: Some of the City’s tax and water bill policies have changed in response to COVID-19. To learn more about new filing and payment procedures, see our tax guidance and updates page. We are processing correspondence and inquiries in a limited capacity, and in the order received. We are also working to add more staff and services as circumstances allow, but customers can expect delays.
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.
