Let’s be honest: we don’t know of anyone in San Francisco who enjoys paying taxes, even though it’s often referred to as the “People’s Republic of San Francisco.” It’s a bit like a trip to the dentist- it’s something that needs to be done, but we are not likely to get pleasure from it. This is why it is vital to get proper professional advice on your income tax return in order to ensure that you pay only the minimum requirement, and no more.
