It’s always nice to have someone you can count on to take care of certain things you’re too busy to handle properly. It’s common for San Francisco locals to have someone who has managed certain tasks for them over the years.

When Bay Area locals are in a pinch and need a recommendation, friends will often tell them “I got a guy” (or gal) who can handle the job, it’s easy to recommend someone who has handled the task with no worries. Maybe a busy Bay Area local needs someone to clean their house, or walk the dog. These are tasks that need to be done right, but require little training. So your dog walker in the Haight or the Financial District has just done the job the way you like and they are reliable. That’s good enough to recommend them to others.

There are moments when people need a person for more complex tasks like tax preparation. Maybe you’ve had someone who has been doing it for years. It could be a family accountant who did your parents’ taxes (and may be ready to retire). It could just be someone you found online who doesn’t charge much for yearly tax service. This person has been trusted to manage the tax returns every year and you’ve built a certain amount of loyalty to them. So what happens when “your guy” makes a major mistake and you receive an IRS audit letter in the mail?

In short, you need IRS audit defense in San Francisco, and your guy isn’t up to the task.
