Be Wise with Your Tax Return
Do you want to minimize your tax liability? Whether you are being audited by the IRS, need your tax return prepared, have unfiled tax return(s), or have any other tax issue, you can benefit from our expertise and experience.
The current U.S. tax code called the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) — over 2,600 pages long — is complex. Moreover, the tax code changes so frequently that most people do not have time to stay up to date with the changes.
Listed in Yelp’s top ten tax experts in Chicago, SRJ Consulting has the expertise you need to use the tax code in your favor to minimize your taxes.

With decades of experience, Jhawar is skilled at getting to the root cause of a tax problem and resolve it with the IRS.
In 1979, Jhawar earned his Enrolled Agent (EA) credential — the highest credential awarded by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). As an enrolled agent licensed by the U.S. Department of Treasury, Shiv R. Jhawar can speak directly to the IRS on your behalf in any tax matter including IRS audit, appeal, and collection.
