Miami and Palm Beach, (approximately 33 miles to both cities). Pompano Beach is in the heart of everything! Minutes from Ft. Lauderdale, Pompano Beach is the third largest of Broward County’s 29 municipalities. Conveniently located close to major shopping and attractions, Pompano Beach is only 12 miles from the Ft. Lauderdale / Hollywood International Airport and Port Everglades. Pompano Beach provides the lifestyle of a quiet seaside community with the benefits of a major metropolitan area.
Our economy is based on tourism, light manufacturing, retail, and high technology with 3,000 acres set aside for industrial and commercial development. Located near two international airports, several international seaports, railways and highways, Pompano Beach provides access to the global marketplace. Being part of Broward County gives us the added advantage of being close to over 2 million people and 50,000 businesses.
We are also a crucial part of the Internet Coast, a recently identified corridor of high technology businesses that include two tier-one Network Access Points (NAPS) in South Florida, which provide Latin American countries with Internet service. Palm Beach, Broward and Dade counties form the Internet Coast and Pompano Beach is the heart.
Our tax structure is very attractive. An estimated one-half of general revenue in the state is derived from our 6% sales tax, much of which is paid for by our popularity as a tourist/vacation destination. There is no state income tax, no state property tax, no inventory tax and no corporate franchise tax on capital stock. And Pompano Beach enjoys one of the smallest tax rates in the county.
