If I purchase a piece of property in San Francisco and sell it again after a few months, what happens to my supplemental tax?
If you purchase property in San Francisco and then sell property within a short period of time, your supplemental tax bill will cover only those months during which you owned the property.
The new owner should receive a separate supplemental tax bill from the San Francisco Office of the Treasurer & Tax Collector. Because there are often delays in placing new assessments on the San Francisco tax roll, you should check the dates used to determine the bill. Those dates cover the period during which you actually owned the property. If you receive an incorrect tax bill, contact the Office of the Assessor-Recorder at (415) 554-5596.
