In 2014, the Office of the Treasurer and Tax Collector will be implementing the Gross Receipts Tax and Business Registration Fees Ordinance; which was approved by voters in November 2012 (Proposition E). Under the ordinance, the City will phase in a Gross Receipts Tax and reduce the Payroll Expense Tax over the next five years. The Gross Receipts Tax applies to businesses with more than $1 million in gross receipts, exempting most small businesses. Business Registration Fees will also change for all businesses starting in May. For more information, please visit the website of the Office of the Treasurer and Tax Collector.
The Office of the Mayor in partnership with the Office of Economic and Workforce Development, the Office of the Treasurer and Tax Collector, and the Office of Small Business are joining forces to inform the more than 90,000 businesses in San Francisco about the new changes to the business tax structure.
As part of the City's effort to inform businesses of these changes, businesses and individuals can learn more by attending upcoming seminars and presentations. Check out the community calendar of upcoming events and meetings.
