As California residents, San Franciscans face many challenges and opportunities vis-a-vis the TCJA. On the one hand, the deduction for state and local income taxes has been capped, a sort of “tax penalty” for residents of high tax “Blue” states. But on the other hand, the new tax law has upped the standard deduction and lowered many tax rates. There are other nooks and crannies of the tax law that, when used wisely, can reduce one’s tax burden. As is so often the case with respect to tax laws, and especially new tax changes such as the TCJA, proper tax planning and tax preparation is essential. Read the newsletter to learn about the TCJA and get some ideas on what might hurt, or help, you. Then reach out to us as the leading tax preparation service in San Francisco, and we can work with you to optimize your tax strategy. Our aim: leverage every aspect of the TCJA to minimize your taxes!
