Tax Return

Be Wise With Your Tax Return

Are you looking for the "right" professional to handle your tax matter? Hiring the right professional can make all the difference for your financial health!

Tax laws change constantly. The US tax code is not only complex but is also open to more than one interpretation. SRJ Consulting can help you take the maximum advantage of the tax code, rather than letting the tax code take advantage of you. Therefore, let SRJ Consulting be your right choice!

Experience You Can Count On

When results matter, professional experience counts. Shiv R. Jhawar is an experienced and highly rated tax professional specializing in interpreting and applying the tax code.

Jhawar earned his Enrolled Agent (EA) credential  — the highest credential awarded by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) — in 1979. Practicing under the firm name of SRJ Consulting, Jhawar has been providing tax services to individuals and corporations for over 30 years.

Like CPAs and attorneys, Jhawar can represent taxpayers before the IRS for audits and appeals.  CPAs and attorneys are state-licensed to operate only within the territory of their licensing state, whereas EAs are federally-licensed to represent taxpayers before the IRS in all 50 states.

According to the IRS Commissioner, here are the actions the IRS will NEVER do: call to demand immediate payment; threaten to send local police  to arrest or deport you; require you to use a specific method to pay your taxes (like a debit card); ask for a credit card or debit card over the phone.

Client Reviews

Stuart Schneider: "I had questions regarding international tax reporting compliance with respect to the IRS. My CPA was clueless on the issue and the 3 forms in question and my responsibility to comply with IRS rules. SRJ consulting made an appointment with me as soon as I returned to the city. Not only was I not required to file anything additional because it didn't apply to me, SRJ also gave me a plain English summary of the IRS rules and documented the reasons with 5 pages of IRS actual rules which exempted me from any additional reporting. It was a great stress off my shoulders. Shiv also pointed out several discrepancies and unnecessary tax forms with my prior tax return that will now be corrected. Great job and thanks!!"

James A.: " I would like to recommend SRJ Consulting to anyone who would like to remain worry and stress-free throughout the complex tax season. Personally, I do not believe that people who use tax software can achieve the same benefit as having someone who can delve into your personal financial situation."

Renee N.: "Recently, SRJ even helped my sister and her husband out of a messy IRS audit and saved her a lot of money. Once you work with them, you will want nobody, but SRJ Consulting."

Brian Margolis: "Outstanding tax service, have been with them for over 15 years, they are the best of what they do. highly recommend for a peace of mind."

Brian J. "Finding SRJ consulting was an absolute godsend."
