Public Service Tax on Propane Gas, Natural Gas & Electricity

All sales of propane gas, natural gas or electricity within the unincorporated area of Palm Beach County are subject to the 10% Palm Beach County Public Service Tax. The Palm Beach County Commission adopted and approved the Palm Beach County Public Service Tax Ordinance on July 18, 1989, and established procedures for collecting the tax.

The Clerk & Comptroller’s office is responsible for:

  • Identification of, contact with, and monitoring of remittances from vendors subject to the Public Service Tax.
  • Initiation of the interest and penalty assessment process.
  • Computation of interest or penalty amounts, vendor notification of amounts due, and receipt and recording of remitted funds.

Online Account Access:

Active registered vendors may access their accounts and payment history online 24 hours a day at www.pbcgov.com/pst. A user name and password is required. Vendors who need assistance with registration may call (561) 355-4076 or (561) 355-3301, or email PSTHelp@mypalmbeachclerk.com.
