April 7, 2016 – San Francisco, California. Safe Harbor LLP, a top San Francisco accounting firm with expert accountants, is proud to announce an important refresh to its informational page on accountants and accounting issues at https://www.safeharborcpa.com/best-accounting-firm/. The lay public is often confused during tax season among terms such as CPA, accountant, and enrolled agent. The March, 2016, refresh updates the firm’s informational page on accounting issues.

“Anyone who lives inside an industry becomes very accustomed to specific terms, not the least of which are professional description terms such as ‘accountant’” explained Chun Wong, CPA, managing partner at Safe Harbor LLP. “Accordingly, we may use the term ‘CPA’ and ‘Accountant’ interchangeably but the general public may think of these as two different things, not to mention ‘tax service.’ As we ramp up for the busy individual tax preparation season here in San Francisco, we wanted to upgrade our accounting page accordingly.”

To view the updated informational page on accountants and accounting issues, visit our website and learn more about our accounting firm.  There, interested parties can learn about the firm’s San Francisco Accountantsservices plus review a short discussion on the term ‘CPA’ vs. ‘Accountant.’

Preparing for Individual Tax Preparation Season with a Newly Updated Accounting Page

The average lay person often just knows that they need their taxes prepared. This person might have a simple return, or a more complex return with business issues, or even a return that touches on international tax issues. The person may not understand the importance of turning to a certified public accountant or CPA, and may turn instead to one of the national big-box chains that advertise heavily during tax season. While many of the preparers are those big-box chains can be good, some can find themselves over their heads when it comes to complex tax returns, especially those that have businesses, corporations, or international tax compliance issues. By turning to a certified public accountant, the tax payer can make sure to get a quality return prepared, thereby minimizing taxes paid and reducing the likelihood of an expensive audit. The firm’s newly updated page on accounting aims to better educate the taxpaying public on the benefits of using an accountant for their tax preparation needs during the busy, 2016, tax season.
