The presence of taxable activity in the City within the meaning of the Business Privilege Tax (“BPT”) Ordinance is essentially a factual determination to be made on a case by case basis. In general, taxable activity includes any trade, business, profession, vocation or any manufacturing, commercial, service, financial or utility business or activity that originates from, is carried on through, directed from or otherwise attributable to Philadelphia.
Any person who engages in a taxable activity in Philadelphia or attributable to Philadelphia is subject to this tax whether or not such person is a resident and whether or not such person has a permanent place of business in Philadelphia. Any person is subject to this tax if such person carries on a taxable activity in Philadelphia or attributable to Philadelphia, whether or not such person is licensed to do business in Philadelphia. Whether such taxpayer is subject to the full BPT tax or only to the Gross Receipts portion depends on the level and the nature of the taxpayer’s activity within Philadelphia.
