Lingering Questions About the San Francisco Gross Receipts Tax

The first installment payment for the new San Francisco Gross Receipts Tax was due April 30, 2014. Many questions about the new tax remain. While the City has provided some relief from installment underpayment penalties, taxpayers need answers to these questions to accurately determine their tax liability.

On November 26, 2013, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved amendments to the San Francisco Business and Tax Regulations Code (“Code”), providing for penalty relief for delinquent Gross Receipts Tax (“GRT”) installment payments1, mandatory combined reporting for Payroll Expense Tax purposes, and the imposition of a new penalty for failure to file returns on a combined basis or failure to provide worldwide payroll or gross receipts information.
