Beginning on April 16, 2024, the Office of the Assessor-Recorder will transition to a new main office phone number, 628-652-8100. For the next 12 months, constituents who call the Office’s prior phone number will automatically be transferred to our new line. As part of this transition, the Office is instituting key upgrades to improve the experience that San Franciscans have when calling us. To learn more, click here.

If you own a Commercial Fishing Boat, you may be eligible for a 96% reduced assessment.

To find out if you are eligible, file an Affidavit of 4% Assessment of Certain Vessels (Form BOE 576-E) with the Assessor-Recorder, Business Personal Property Division by February 15th.  If you file between February 16th and August 1st, you will be eligible for 80% of the reduced assessment. 

It is not the Assessor-Recorder’s responsibility to notify all vessel owners who might qualify for the 4% assessment.
