§ 502.5.

IMPOSITION OF SURCHARGE

There shall be an additional tax of 1.75 percent on the rent for every occupancy of the guest rooms in a hotel in the City and County of San Francisco between July 1, 1980 and August 14, 1993 and an additional tax of 2.75 percent on the rent for every occupancy on and after August 15, 1993.

When rent is paid, charged, billed or falls due on either a weekly, monthly or other term basis, the rent so paid, charged, billed or falling due shall be subject to the tax of eight percent herein imposed to the extent that it covers any portion of the period prior to July 1, 1980, and to the tax of eight percent herein plus the 1.75 percent surcharge imposed to the extent that it covers any portion of the period between July 1, 1980 and August 14, 1993, and the 2.75 percent surcharge imposed to the extent that it covers any portion of the period on and after August 15, 1993, and such payment, charge, bill or rent due shall be apportioned on the basis of the ratio of the number of days falling within the periods prior to July 1, 1980, between July 1, 1980 and August 14, 1993, and on and after August 15, 1993 to the total number of days covered thereby. Where any tax has been paid hereunder upon any rent without any right of occupancy therefor, the Tax Collector may by regulation provide for credit or refund of the amount of such tax upon application therefor as provided in this Code.

The surcharge tax so collected shall be deposited in the General Fund subject to appropriation pursuant to the budget and fiscal provisions of the Charter.

By adopting this ordinance the People of the City and County of San Francisco do not intend to limit or in anyway curtail any powers the Board of Supervisors may exercise as to the subject matter of this ordinance, including, but not limited to, raising the rate of taxation or surcharge, lowering the rate of taxation or surcharge, eliminating the tax or surcharge, or creating or defining new categories of taxpayers under this ordinance.
