Be Wise About Your Taxes

Welcome to SRJ Consulting!

Have a tax problem? Failed to file your US income tax return on time? Want to get your taxes done right? Tax laws are constantly changing. The U.S. tax code and regulations are extremely complex and are open to differing interpretation. Let SRJ Consulting help you take advantage of the tax laws instead of letting the tax laws take advantage of you.

Over three decades of practical experience gives me the expertise to get to the root cause of a tax problem and resolve it with the IRS. Let my experience work for you!

According to the IRS, "Enrolled Agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards." I received my Enrolled Agent (EA) status in 1979, when I began my own tax practice under the firm name, SRJ Consulting.

As an EA, I can represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in audits, collections, and appeals in all 50 states with the same rights and privileges as CPAs and Attorneys.

My credentials include a Master of Accounting Science (MAS) degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, as well as a Chartered Accountant (CA) certificate.  I am a member of the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA), and a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (CA).

Dedicated to excellence in tax solutions, SRJ Consulting has been providing competent tax services to individuals, sole proprietors, LLCs, S-Corps, and C-Corps. Each tax return is prepared with great care, as if you were a family member. Please check out what clients say about SRJ Consulting on Yelp and Google+.

    Shiv and Anvi at SRJ Consulting are both true professionals, and honest to goodness good people. They took my late paperwork at the 11th hour, and not only did they make time to consult, they made me feel like an old friend who had stopped by to visit. I cannot recommend SRJ highly enough. I need a 6th star! If you are seeking an accountant or someone to help you through your tax questions, look no further! Plan ahead for next year, as they might not have room because they really are that good at what they do!

    Shiv is one of the best accountants out there. I had very complex taxes this past year, and Shiv was an essential part of helping us get through tax season. I had several 1099s, and my husband had filed an SS-8 form to change his status from a contractor to an employee. Since my husband's previous employer did not issue him a W2, we would have been lost without Shiv. Shiv and his staff helped us through the process of finding things to write off, as well as filling out the correct forms to make up for the W2 that we never received. Thank you SRJ Consulting!

    I needed to have my 2015 taxes amended and my 2016 completed.  Both were very complicated given my company had issued me several W2s for nonresident states I worked in during both years.  It was a daunting and stressful idea to me, having to sort through what appeared to be a seemingly complex mess of taxes.  Shiv assured me he'd take care of everything and not to worry.  He was right.  Both he and his staff, especially, Anvi, were incredibly helpful.  They made the process easy, and they were flexible with my schedule when it came to appointments and signing documents.  In between appointments, they kept me up to date on the progress they were making.  I never worried or wondered what was happening.  I'll definitely continue to rely on SRJ consulting going forward!

    I got my 2016 tax returns prepared today and it couldn't have been easier signing the forms electronically. With the new improvements SRJ Consulting has made in 2017, I was able to upload my tax documents securely on their website and when the tax returns were prepared, I was able to e-sign my returns. The back and forth of sending tax returns and having to print, manually sign, then scan or fax or mail them back for tax filing was eliminated. How easy and efficient the entire tax filing process using SRJ Consulting!

    I had my best tax season experience by working with Shiv and Anvi. They made my life incredibly easy with their experience and sincere service throughout the process. I will definitely stay with them after experiencing such an easy tax filing process this time around.  And, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them for those who are looking for making the tax season a breeze!!!

    Very helpful. As a foreigner, I needed some guidance for my taxes, and they took the required time to understand my (rather complicated) situation. Would recommend it to other expatriates in need for a good accountant.

    Shiv and his great assistants have been taking care of my accounting needs since 1979. During that time he has saved me much more money than I could have ever imagined. Shiv has a gift for find absolutely ever way within the law of saving his clients money on their tax returns. Remarkably he gives every client big and small the same exacting attention to detail. I tend to believe this is very rare. Anyone and everyone would be very lucky to have Shiv and his crew take care of your accounting needs.
