June 3, 2019 – San Francisco, California. Safe Harbor LLP, long considered one of the leading tax consultancies in the San Francisco Bay Area and in California for businesses, corporations, and startups as well as high net worth individuals, is proud to announce a new ad campaign focused on four key semantic patterns – tax advisor, professional, consultant, and specialist – as savvy business owners shift towards tax planning given that the 2019 tax season is now in the rearview mirror. tax advisor in San Francisco, CAMany business owners, however, do not know how to identify a year-round tax advisor and so the new ad campaign reaches Bay Area individuals and corporations where they are: Internet search queries.

“Failing to plan, as they say, is planning to fail,” explained Chun Wong, Managing Partner at Safe Harbor LLP. “As tax season draws to a close, we want to reach out to the San Francisco business and corporate community to encourage them to find a savvy tax advisor whatever term they use to describe it. Our new ad campaigns running on Google, Bing, and Yahoo encourage businesses to find us and reach out for a consultation on how to better prepare for taxes this year.”

Persons interested in seeing the ads can simply visit Google, Bing, or Yahoo and begin searching for terms such as “San Francisco Tax Specialist” or “Bay Area International Tax Advisor” to see the firm’s advertising. Another tactic is to visit the firm’s landing page on tax advisor issues. There one can learn about how the firm can help with year-round planning and tax consultancy issues; it should be noted that Safe Harbor has a robust reputation in the Bay Area as one of the leading CPA firms for startups and entrepreneurs. Finally, those seeking online information on business tax services in the San Francisco Bay Area.

In all cases, interested parties are urged to reach out to the accounting firm for a consultation. No two situations are the same, and the point of the advertising outreach is to encourage initial consultations and analysis so that year-round tax planning can begin. During tax season each year, Safe Harbor is forced to play “catch up” for many new clients who have procrastinated on their taxes until the last minute. The San Francisco accounting firm’s preferred modus operandi, in contrast, is to work as a tax professional throughout the year so that bookkeeping, structural or organizational issues, and spending can be set up so as to minimize taxes and allow for quick and easy year-end tax preparation.


Here is background on this release. Tax season 2019 (for the tax year 2018) was incredibly hectic as this was the first year in which the Trump tax changes went into effect. Many San Francisco residents and businesses were caught unprepared as withholding percentages had been changed, state and local taxes (so-called SALT deductions) had been capped, and other changes came into effect. In some cases, these were positive for the business or individual. In other cases, they were negative. In all cases, the persons or businesses who planned had an easier time of it than those who buried their head in the sand and pretended like tax and accounting issues would be easy in the new environment.

As the San Francisco business and high income community looks forward into 2019, Safe Harbor is working hard at Internet outreach so that when a savvy businessperson or individual looks for a tax specialist, he or she can find the accounting firm and begin a conversation about how to prepare for taxes in 2019. The hope is that these forward-looking people will learn that a little tax planning now can go a long way towards minimizing tax preparation headaches and cost for this tax year.
