Welfare & Non-profit Exemptions 101

Every year, the Office of San Francisco Assessor Carmen Chu granted over $16 billion in property tax exemptions, much of which went to support San Francisco non-profit organizations. These exemptions are one way our office helps our local non-profits to serve the community. Unfortunately, these programs can be confusing and guidance and clarity around property tax exemptions can be better! On January 14, 2020 the Assessor’s Office partnered with the CA State Board of Equalization to present the Welfare Exemption Workshop to provide assistance for non-profits when navigating the welfare exemptions process.
