Local California business tax filing deadlines are quickly approaching and often overlooked. As tax filing season nears, businesses should be aware of the following information regarding San Francisco and Los Angeles business taxes.
The San Francisco 2022 annual business tax return is due February 28, 2023. The return includes the reporting and payment of the gross receipts tax or administrative office tax, the homelessness tax or the homelessness administrative office tax, the commercial rents tax, and the overpaid executive gross receipts tax. San Francisco’s payroll expense tax, which applied in prior years, has been eliminated.
