Calculations of 2022 estimated quarterly business tax payments will be based on the information entered in your San Francisco Annual Business Tax Return for 2021 and will be displayed in the payment portal within 24 hours of completing your filing.
- For the Gross Receipts Tax (GR), we calculate 25% of your Gross Receipts Tax liability for 2021. If your 2021 gross receipts were less than $2,000,000, you do not have to pay any estimated payments for 2022.
- For the Administrative Office Tax (AOT), we calculate 25% of your AOT liability for 2021.
- For the Commercial Rents Tax (CR) and Homelessness Gross Receipts Tax (HGR), we assumed your relevant gross receipts remain constant from 2021 to 2022, and used those to estimate 25% of your CR and HGR liability for 2022.
If you instructed our office to apply an overpayment from the 2021 Return to future tax obligations, those credited amounts are reflected in the summary table on your notice.
If you file an extension for your 2021 Return, you must calculate and pay your first quarter estimated business tax payment by mail, even if you have requested our office to apply an overpayment to future obligations in your Annual Return. You will not see a calculation reflected in our system until you've filed the Annual Return.
