City business taxes
San Francisco taxes businesses based on gross receipts as well as business personal property like machinery, equipment or fixtures. Some businesses may be required to pay additional taxes based on their business type (e.g. hotels, parking) or business personal property.
State business taxes
The State of California doesn’t just collect sales tax. It also has taxes such as a franchise tax, corporate income tax, and alternative minimum tax. Which taxes apply to you and how you pay them depends on your business type.
