We do a lot of business tax preparation here in San Francisco. In fact, we are known as one of the best CPA firms in San Francisco for business and corporate taxes. While we do quite a few individual tax returns as well, we try not to specialize on the low end returns, that is on people who have W-2 income and all they need done is a simple return. Those people are better served by the big-box tax preparation services, which tend to congregate in downtown San Francisco.
Now, as one of the CPA firms that does a lot of business tax preparation, we do a lot of tax preparation for realtors and real estate agents here in the city of San Francisco. And do you know what they tell us all the time? Well, they say that the most important attribute in real estate is location, location, location. The median cost of a house in San Francisco has just hit $1.6 million. That’s a lot of premium for location, location, location!
We love the city of San Francisco because of its people, its weather, its openness, and, of course, because of its vibrant business environment. We do lots of business tax preparation for startups, for example. We do lots of business tax preparation for mom-and-pop businesses, for example. We do lots of business tax preparation for restaurants, for example. One of the fun things about doing tax preparation for businesses is that we get to look inside of the business, and we learned a lot about what’s going on in the business scene here in our beloved city.
Well, that brings us to this issue of the location. Well our realtor friends tell us that location is incredibly important to the price of a home for sale, that is not so true when it comes to finding the best business tax preparation service in San Francisco. Our CPA firm, for example, is not located in some pricey office building in downtown San Francisco. Rather, we are out on the avenues, and we love it, because it is a much more chill environment than the hustle and bustle of downtown SF. Let’s face it. When you are looking at a complicated tax situation, you really want peace and quiet.
