SAN FRANCISCO, March 1, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Safe Harbor LLP, considered one of the top tax CPA firms in San Francisco, California, is announcing three key outreach efforts at tax deadlines loom. With mid-March the deadline for business returns and mid-April the deadline for individual returns, the firm is working hard to maximize outreach to last-minute procrastinators who may need help. The outreach is an annual effort to help people in need set a foundation so that going forward they are well-prepared for next year's tax issues.
“As this is the first year of the so-called Trump tax cuts, we are experiencing heavy inquiries from San Franciscans confused about how it may impact their taxes,” explained Chun Wong, managing partner at Safe Harbor LLP. “Accordingly, we are announcing three key outreach efforts to help last-minute filers.”
First, the firm is announcing stepped-up advertising on search engines for terms such as "last minute tax preparation service" or "business tax preparation" in San Francisco, California. It is a fact that last-minute filers tend to go to search engines when looking for a competent tax service. Safe Harbor LLP is one of the most digitally savvy accounting firms in the city and, accordingly, new Google and Bing ads are there when people search to guide them to the website and set up a consultation.
Second, the firm is announcing increased staffing to answer email inquiries and phone inquiries. The first inquiry is often quite stressful for clients who may be ashamed that they have waited until the last minute. However, extensions can be filed and calculations made of any tax due. Safe Harbor LLP is using a "no judgment zone" policy to encourage last-minute filers to come forward and seek out a professional tax advisor in San Francisco. Indeed, a specific informational page for San Francisco tax advisors has been created at http://www.safeharborcpa.com/tax-advisor/.
Third, the firm is announcing a series of innovative blog posts on the Trump tax changes such as a recent one at http://www.safeharborcpa.com/the-trump-tax-plan-what-it-means-to-you-what-you-need-to-do/. That post, for example, helps users understand what they need to know and how they need to know it. The reality is that only a trained tax advisor can look at the facts of their business, corporate or individual income and compare it with the new tax laws.

CRISIS THEN PREPARATION: BACKGROUND
Here is background on this release. Safe Harbor LLP has grown over the past few years into what is arguably the best CPA firm in San Francisco, especially for its size. Each year, the accounting firm works hard to prepare its clients for "tax season" so that it is stress-free. This means working throughout the year as their tax advisor, helping businesses, corporations and high-income individuals work hard to reduce their tax burdens and get all their books in order. On-going clients tend to exclaim after they file their taxes that, "That was easy!" Preparation is a key component of the strategies used by Safe Harbor LLP.
Second, the firm knows that many San Franciscans wait until the last minute. Many of these are stressed-out tech workers who may have high incomes from the tech bubble, such as from stock options or startup incomes. Others are small business owners who have outgrown their current accountant or bookkeeper but only realize so when it's time to file their taxes. For this reason, the accounting firm is announcing three key outreach efforts to reach this final group. And, in addition, after the heat of tax season is over, Safe Harbor works hard with each and every continuing client to prepare so that tax season is not so difficult the next year.
Third, any person who has "waited until the last minute" is urged to visit the website or call the firm and encounter "no judgment." The next best step is to reach out for an immediate consultation, file an extension if necessary, but begin the actions necessary to comply with all federal, state and local tax laws.
