The Diverse Chambers Coalition of Philadelphia

We are excited to announce that we’ve launched the DiverseChambers Coalition of Philadelphia, a partnership of local diversechambers of commerce on working collaboratively to facilitate entrepreneurship and growth, to advocate collectively on shared issues, and to increase each member’s organizational efficiency. The Diverse Chambers Coalition of Philadelphia (DCCPHL) includes the African American Chamber of Commerce of PA, NJ, and DE, the Asian American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Philadelphia, the Greater Philadelphia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and the Independence Business Alliance (Greater Philadelphia’s LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce).

This collective will aim to identify areas of collaboration among diversebusinesses and will advocate for the advancement of policies that support the growth of diverse-owned companies at the tables where decisions are made. This partnership will work together to advocate for, educate, and connect our businesses for the greater good.

New Tax Filing and Payment Website for Philadelphia Businesses

In November we are unveiling a website that is indeed new and powerful. The Philadelphia Tax Center is not just the City’s new tax filing and payment website. It also allows business owners to:

  • Communicate easily and safely with our department.
  • Apply for business tax credits and payment agreements.
  • Open and close accounts.

The new website represents a big change for Philadelphia businesses, and we need your help sharing three key messages about it now:

  1. Taxpayers should know if their mailing address in our system is correct. This ensures they can use the new website when it’s time. To update a mailing address, call (215) 686-6600.
  2. Anyone can get more information about what’s changing at We’ve published flyers and step-by-step instructions, including in Spanish.
  3. Property taxes will be added the Philadelphia Tax Center later. Property owners should pay their upcoming 2022 Real Estate Tax bills in their usual way, not the Tax Center.
