San Francisco, California – February 1, 2021. Safe Harbor LLP, California’s top-rated San Francisco tax CPA firm, is proud to announce new posts to its blog on the theme of tax return preparation and the need for professionalism.Tax Accountant Unfortunately, many businesses and high income individuals seek out the “cheapest” tax return preparation service or, even worse, encourage their tax advisors to take substantial risks to minimize taxes. These short term tactics can become long term headaches.

“We are not the cheapest tax advisor in San Francisco, nor the one who takes crazy risks with tax return preparation for businesses or individuals in the city,” explained Chun Wong, Managing Partner at Safe Harbor LLP. “Our goal is to set a foundation in best practices and while we certainly minimize the tax bite, we also set up our clients for long-term success and peace of mind. Professionalism and integrity are key to our business model.”

While based in San Francisco, the firm is known across California as one of the top CPA firms for international tax issues.

Here is the background on this release. Insiders in the accounting industry have long known of the tension between “taking risks” to minimize short-term taxes to please clients and the risk of long-term problems. While any savvy tax accountant seeks to minimize taxes, the best focus on long-term strategies that comply with all federal and state laws yet minimize the tax bite. This is especially needed in high-tax, high-cost cities and states such as San Francisco and all of California. Professionalism and integrity are core values of Safe Harbor CPAs. Their tax accountants work hard to understand the factual details of income, assets, and personal situations (such as multi-state or international tax issues). They then seek to minimize taxes in the long run without running afoul of IRS or FTB auditors. Thus persons seeking the cheapest tax return preparation in San Francisco should look elsewhere, as should any person seeking an unethical tax professional who might take short term risks yet create long term problems. Interested persons are urged to reach out for a confidential consultation on their tax accountancy needs.
