Tax Service
Beginning October 1, 2011, a public service tax will be added to the purchase of all electric, water and natural gas services within the City of Deerfield Beach.

The public service tax IS NOT:
  • 10% of the entire electric or water bill.
  • A tax on sewer, garbage, phone, satellite or cable. 
  • A tax on the purchase of gasoline.

The public service tax IS:
  • A revenue source used by all major Broward County cities except Deerfield Beach.
  • A stable, consumption-based revenue source that unlike property taxes, is collected equitably across the entire city.
