Sheila Ashrafi, CPA, MSA
Sheila Ashrafi is a partner in HMWC CPAs & Business Advisors’ Tax Services department, providing tax preparation, planning, and projection services for corporations, partnerships, and individuals.
Sheila’s work involves effective diagnosis, solution, development, and implementation of clients’ tax planning and compliance needs, including: tax minimization strategies; multi-state planning; tax controversies; planning and structuring for complex business or personal transactions; and business valuations and planning for mergers and acquisitions. Further, since tax laws can be very complex, Sheila keeps current on tax rulings, accounting pronouncements, court opinions, and local, state, and federal government bills that may impact our clients’ tax position.
Sheila’s current emphasis has been working with flow-through entities primarily in the real estate and manufacturing industries. She takes a pro-active approach to income tax planning and servicing the client.
Sheila worked in the audit department of a local CPA firm in the Los Angeles area for three years prior to joining HMWC in 1995 as a senior accountant. She advanced to a management position in 1999, and she was promoted to partner in 2014.
Sheila received her M.S. degree in Accounting from James Madison University in 1992, and her B.S. from Syracuse University in 1987.
