We just moved headquarters from Washington to California and I'm looking for a good but affordable tax accountant who understands CA state laws and works with startups. If anyone has a recommendation please do share.

Do not go to Howes Tax. Read their yelp reviews.  They are terrible.  And stay away from Johnston Tax Group while you are at it.
