Important news about property tax services and the April 10 deadline from the San Francisco Treasurer’s Office

March 20, 2020

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.

While we cannot change the state law that sets the April 10 property tax deadline, taxpayers who are unable to pay on time for reasons related to COVID-19 should submit a request for a penalty waiver online.   Please note that penalty waivers will not be 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.

If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center or call 3-1-1.

José Cisneros, San Francisco Treasurer
