Santa Barbara Description

Santa Barbara and neighboring Goleta are 90 miles north of Los Angeles and home to about 150,000 people. Although Santa Barbara is well known for its beautiful beaches, mild weather, and wealthy retirees, Santa Barbara is also known as Silicon Beach and is home to a vibrant high technology community. The high technology community is driven in large part by the University of California at Santa Barbara, one of the premier science universities in the world with several recent Nobel Laureates. Other strong industries include financial services, real estate and construction, entertainment (due to the proximity to Hollywood), flower growing and wineries. Santa Barbara businesses are often international in scope.

Many Santa Barbara tax professionals are nearing retirement age, and there is tremendous opportunity for ambitious CPAs willing and able to take care of a diverse group of interesting clients.
