SBC Special Meeting this Monday: Proposed Business Tax Revisions

This coming Monday, June 26th, a special meeting will be held at City Hall to discuss Supervisor David Chiu’s proposed revisions to the business tax structure in San Francisco known as the “Progressive Payroll Tax.”  This proposed ordinance will likely mean significant changes to the way San Francisco businesses are taxed through a change in the tax structure for those businesses who pay payroll taxes and those who rent commercial property.  The meeting will be held at the following time and location:
  • Special Meeting of the San Francisco Small Business Commission
  • June 28, 2010 at 2:00pm
  • San Francisco City Hall, Room 400
  • To discuss a proposed ballot initiative which, if passed, will change the business tax structure in the City and County of San Francisco.
If you are interested in hearing more about this topic and available on Monday at 2:00pm, please show up for this very important and informational meeting.  For more information on the proposed “Progressive Payroll Tax,” please read the email HERE for more details or contact Chris Shulman from the Office of Small Business at:
