About Ed Mofrad
Ed Mofrad | President of Mofrad Financial Solutions
With more than 20 years leading Mofrad Financial Solutions, my extensive education and experience as a tax professional allows me to meet the needs of our individual, business, off-shore, and not-for-profit clients.
My calling to become a tax professional became clear after working for the Internal Revenue Service. I was eager to work on the taxpayers’ side by implementing ideas that occurred to me while at the IRS.
Four things that set me apart — which might surprise/delight you are:
⦁ My love of teaching came early as the son of a life-long teacher. Throughout my career I have simultaneously taught and worked as an accountant. My teaching experience includes working in Bangkok, and here in Los Angeles.
⦁ I was invited to work in Thailand for 3.5 years. While there, I taught Accounting/Finance courses at Bangkok & Assumption Universities, worked as a Consultant for the “Big-Four” firm of Ernst & Young, and as a Senior Analyst for a branch of the Hong Kong based firm Sun Hung Kai.
⦁ As an IRS Revenue Agent, I had a metal badge (yes, like a cop!) that I used to identify myself to taxpayers while on duty. I didn’t particularly enjoy working for the IRS – that’s why I work on the taxpayers’ side now!
⦁ I coached “Students Run LA” from 1998-04. During those 7 years, I coached “at risk” high school students who had never gotten involved in sports- to run the annual LA Marathon! Each year, we started with approximately 50 youngsters, and of those, nearly 10 completed the marathon each year.
