Miles

Monika founded Miles Consulting Group in 2002. The firm focuses on multi-state tax consulting—helping clients navigate state tax issues such as sales tax and income tax in interstate commerce, including e-commerce. For instance, Monika works with technology clients answering questions such as “What are the sales tax ramifications of selling our new widget into the following 15 states?”

Prior to forming the firm, Monika worked for over 11 years in Big 4 Public Accounting and 1 year in industry. Monika has provided such services as federal and state income/franchise tax compliance and consulting, sales/use tax consulting, audit support, and credits and incentives reviews. She has served clients in a variety of industries.

Monika graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) with a BBA in Accounting/Finance and has a Masters in Taxation from San Jose State University.

Her professional affiliations include the AICPA, CalCPA, Texas Society of CPAs, NAWBO-Silicon Valley, and the Accounting & Financial Women’s Alliance, where she has served in many capacities, including National President (2011/2012). Monika has served as a speaker for various organizations such as the AFWA, Financial Women’s Association - San Francisco, San Jose State University, The University of Texas at El Paso, and Beta Alpha Psi (regional and national conferences), as well as providing customized training for CPA firms and technical webinars.

Monika is honored to be recognized nationally as one of the 25 Most Powerful Women in Accounting by CPA Practice Advisor from 2012 through 2015 and as a 2014 Woman of Influence by the Silicon Valley Business Journal. Monika’s passion is participating annually in fundraising for the American Cancer Society’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.” She has volunteered for the event for 17 years (since its inception in the Bay Area), raising almost $200,000 during that time.

Finally, in addition to multistate work, Monika recently launched her "Jumpstart Your Rainmaking" programs. Jumpstart helps professionals who sell their services put an actionable plan around building relationships which lead to business. Her mix of webinars, group training and coaching help create a plan for professionals at all levels.

About Us: We provide a full range of services, designed for our clients. At Miles Consulting Group, you won’t find a “one-size-fits-all” approach to client service. While we have proven processes, they are customized to clients’ unique needs. We will work with your staff but we will not overburden them - we are aware of the time constraints placed upon in-house staffs and design our workplans ahead of the project. We welcome the opportunity to work in tandem with our clients’ operations personnel and internal and external accounting and legal staffs.
