Transaction Fees

Updated Transaction Fees and Late Fees (As of June 1, 2024)

Starting in June, the SFCSD will begin passing along payment transaction fees for accounts that pay by credit card or bank account through their online account or over the phone. We will also be reinstating late fees.

SFCSD has not raised our prices since 2017.  While we anticipate a rate increase will eventually be necessary, passing along transaction fees to customers is one tactic we're using to keep rates low.

Transaction Fees for Customers Paying with a Card

You may be aware that in recent years, credit card processing has changed significantly, which affects most businesses, including ours. With increasing transaction fees, companies are faced with the options of absorbing the cost or raising their prices. Up until this point, we’ve been bearing the weight of transaction fees, even though that is a common practice for utility companies. However, as credit vendors increase fees, the costs are becoming too high and impacting our operating budget.

Keep in mind these fees are NOT a way for SFCSD to make more money. Rather, it's a way for us to keep providing you with the same reliable service at a low cost.

There are still payment options that do not require a transaction fee!
