Get a tax account

Visit the City’s eFile/ePay website to get a tax account number. This number is used to pay businesses taxes, as well the Earnings and Wage Tax.

If you’re a business, a tax account number and Commercial Activity License (CAL) are required for any business operating in Philadelphia. Once you have your tax account number, you can obtain your CAL from the Department of Licenses & Inspections.
