Your Local Long Beach CPA & Accounting Firm

Your Taxes and Financial Needs Made Easy with the Long Beach CPAs at Crisell & Associates

The residents of Long Beach, California live in one of the most vibrant and beautiful places in the world. Located next to an expansive beach, residents are only a few miles away from a sparkling coastline that’s perfect for swimming, watersports, watching wildlife, and more.

After residents are done at the beach, they can head into town and spend countless hours exploring eclectic neighborhoods, world-class museums, and witness unforgettable live performances. There really is no other place in the world like Long Beach.

Enjoying the beautiful scenery, activities, and high-quality of life does come with a cost. Sales taxes are a bit higher in Long Beach. At nine percent, they are a full percent higher than many other locations throughout the state. In addition, living so close to the beach costs more than other landlocked areas across the country. Property taxes can be quite high throughout the city. Add to that the various local, state, and national taxes, and it’s more important than ever that you seek the help of a professional Long Beach CPA with extensive experience in the Long Beach area.

Put your trust in a team of professional Long Beach CPAs with ties in the community

Focusing locally is a popular trend that isn’t likely to go anywhere anytime soon. By choosing local produce, food, products, and services, you can greatly enhance the quality of the place where you live, and the residents of Long Beach take this to whole new heights.

The local movement is alive and well here, and Crisell & Associates is proud to be part of such a vibrant area with residents who are dedicated to making their home the very best place it can be. Our experienced accountants are part of the movement by dedicating their time to two local boards.

The first is the Community Hospital Long Beach Foundation (CHLBF). This foundation works to promote the best possible patient services and health programs throughout the community. CHLBF uses donated funds in order to ensure patients throughout the area have access to high-quality healthcare, as well as partnering with various physicians in the area to enhance the quality of services that are offered to Long Beach residents.

The second is the Aquatic Capital of America Foundation. Long Beach is located uniquely along the California coast. The city is located between the Los Angeles and San Gabriel Rivers. The Pacific Ocean is located to the south, the Port of Long Beach is located to the west, Alamitos Bay is located to the east, and Marine Stadium and Colorado Lagoon are located to the north. With so much water, residents and visitors love swimming, kayaking, outrigger canoeing, paddle boarding, sailing, and boating, in addition to cruising, fishing, and watching wildlife like the whales, dolphins, and sea lions that call the area home.

With so much water, there’s a lot to protect and promote. The foundation works hard to cleanse the waterways of pollution and educate the community on how to preserve the natural splendor of the area. They do this by honoring and supporting aquatic athletes, promoting water safety and education, and promoting the area as a primary destination for visitors looking for water based adventures.
