We know that the impacts from the public health emergency and the economic downturn related to COVID-19 have been severe, and our office is committed to helping in any way we can.
We encourage all property owners who can pay their taxes on time to do so. This revenue helps keep the government running and providing vital services that the public relies on, especially in times like these.
As the San Francisco shelter-in-place order has been extended and in accordance with state law, the new property tax deadline is May 4, 2020 (the first business day after the shelter-in-place order is lifted). Taxpayers who are unable to pay by this date for reasons related to COVID-19 should submit a request for a penalty waiver request online. Please note that penalty waiver requests will not accepted until after the property tax deadline.
Currently our City Hall offices are closed, and we cannot accept in-person payments. To make a property tax payment, please pay online or by US mail. There is no cost for e-Check payments online. Do not send cash in the US mail.
José Cisneros, San Francisco Treasurer
