New Payment Plan Option for Business with Delinquent SFDPH License Fees

The Board of Supervisors unanimously passed legislation to allow certain businesses to enter into a payment plan for outstanding SFDPH license fees. Until now, businesses with outstanding SFDPH license fees had to pay the entire balance in full or their licenses would be revoked. Eligible businesses can now enter into a payment plan by April 30, 2023 and continue to operate in good standing. Read our Press Release to learn more.

  • Businesses with delinquent license fees collected by the Tax Collector on behalf of the Department of Public Health; AND
  • Businesses that are not delinquent on license fees the Tax Collector collects on the Unified License Bill on behalf of any department other than the Department of Public Health.
  • Businesses must enroll in a payment plan by April 30, 2023.
  • Only fees delinquent prior to March 31, 2023 are eligible for the payment plan.
  • Businesses must include other non-license delinquencies in the payment plan and remain current throughout the payment plan to keep the licenses active; and
  • Businesses must not incur any additional delinquencies for the duration of payment plan, including new license fees.
  • If a Business fails to satisfy the conditions of the payment plan, the Tax Collector may terminate the plan, at which time the full amount remaining under the plan would become due immediately, the licensee’s licenses would expire immediately by operation of law, and additional penalties may accrue.

The Bureau of Delinquent Revenue will send out additional information to eligible businesses via mail and email. You can also contact the Bureau of Delinquent Revenue directly at to verify eligibility and set up a payment plan.
