Welcome to CSR Nation
I live and work in the Ventura area and am looking for a good CPA who is also reasonable. I've been using someone in Orange County and he's quite expensive.
I have an amazing CPA I use. His name is Frank Baldanzi & Company. He got me 8,000 back last year. That's never happened in my reporting career. He lives in San Francisco. Cannot say enough great stuff about him. He's not in Southern California, though.
