The newsletter is published at no cost on the firm’s website and has proven popular not just in San Francisco but throughout the San Francisco bay Area.

“With all the uncertainties involving taxes going forward in a climate of proposed tax reform, we have many clients coming to us for advice as one of the top-rated accounting firms that provide tax preparation services in San Francisco not just for business but for individuals” explained Chun Wong, Managing Partner at Safe Harbor LLP. “Realistically,” he continued, “A big box chain tax service isn’t appropriate for anyone with significant income nor for someone who has a business or might be facing international tax issues such as how to prepare an expat tax return.”

To view the newsletter on San Francisco tax tips, visit Those looking for an overview to the firm’s business tax preparation services can visit the website, or simply contact the accounting firm for a consultation. No two tax returns are the same, and a truly professional tax service will work hard to pre-evaluate income, assets, and the tax laws to minimize taxation in both the short and long term.


Erroneously, many people think about taxes only at tax time. They Google “San Francisco tax services” or ask their friends and family during the early part of the year. Safe Harbor LLP stands against this type of last-minute, panic selection of the best tax service. For this reason, the firm produces an informative monthly newsletter and works very hard with its clients, both businesses and individuals, to structure their income and assets in such a way as to minimize their taxation. For this reason, the December newsletter looks at retirement planning, specifically ROTH IRAs and the tax implications of using pre- or post-tax monies to fund one’s retirement account. Indeed, many people may not realize that they can transfer funds from one to the other, strategically, to minimize the tax bite. Similarly, the newsletter explains the ins and outs of employee gifts, a topic of importance to San Francisco businesses as the holidays approach and with them, end of year bonuses. Indeed, many Bay Area startups choose Safe Harbor as their preferred startup accounting firm to help structure employee compensation and employee stock options. Journalists and bloggers looking for a San Francisco-based expert in tax issues are encouraged to reach out for interview opportunities.
