Interested persons can view the new post at https://www.safeharborcpa.com/expat-taxes-are-complicated-but-are-one-of-our-specialties/. The post explains the basics of expat tax return preparation not just for San Francisco clients but for clients throughout California who have income in foreign countries and/or property. Each situation is unique, and only a qualified tax professional can help analyze the necessary tax returns that need to be prepared. In addition, the Pandemic has complicated tax return preparation as different governments have initiated different programs, rebates, tax deductions, etc. For this reason it is imperative to work with a San Francisco Bay Area CPA firm with deep expertise in international tax issues. Interested persons can view the information page on international tax issues or reach out to the firm for a consultation.


Here is the background to this release. San Francisco, in particular, and the Bay Area, in general, are among the most heavily international areas in the United States. Not only large corporations but also affluent individuals often have income and/or property in foreign countries. Another common situation is workers who come to the Bay Area from other countries such as Canada, Germany, or China and work in the United States. They thus often generate tax exposure not only in the United States but also in California as well as their home country. For example, a person who is a Canadian citizen may have income in Canada, income in California, and perhaps even income from an investment property in Germany. They thus face a very complicated tax situation. Second, the Pandemic has further complicated tax regulations across countries as different countries have implemented different tax changes due to the Pandemic. All of this means that there is a scramble to find CPA firms in California that have deep expertise in expat tax preparation and more complex individual and business tax needs.
