Be Wise About Your Taxes


Welcome to SRJ Consulting! Have a tax problem? Want to make sure your taxes are done right?  The U.S. tax code and its regulations are extremely complex and massive (74,608 pages!). Moreover, the tax laws are constantly changing 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. That's what being wise about your taxes really means.

I have been in private tax practice under the firm name of SRJ Consulting for over three decades after getting my Enrolled Agent (EA) license in 1979. As an EA, licensed by the United States federal government, rather than by a state, I am allowed to 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.

According to the IRS website, "Enrolled Agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards." Besides being an EA,  my professional credentials include a Master of Accounting Science (MAS) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 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.

Based in Chicago, SRJ Consulting specializes in tax return preparation, IRS audit defense, IRS Appeals, penalty abatement, tax return amendment, non-resident tax returns as well as business accounting, payroll, and consulting services. If you have unfiled prior years’ tax returns, SRJ Consulting can help you get back into tax compliance.

Taxpayers with foreign accounts may have to file an FBAR and/or FATCA. The IRS Form 1040, Schedule B Part III line 7a,  specifically asks you whether or not you had a foreign account.  SRJ Consulting offers FBAR and FATCA filing services. FBAR refers to FinCEN Form 114 - Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR). The FBAR is not filed with your income tax return —it is filed with the U.S. Treasury's FinCEN. FATCA refers to the IRS Form 8938 - Statement of Specified Foreign Financial Assets. Neither FBAR nor FATCA  result in additional income tax — they simply exist as disclosure requirements.  Failing to file FBAR or FATCA can result in severe penalties.

Not knowing the complex tax laws can cost you huge in penalties. SRJ Consulting stays up-to-date on the changes to current tax laws and puts in hours of research to minimize your taxes.

SRJ Consulting can find extra deductions and credits. Each tax return is prepared with great care as if you were a family member. And, just one idea from SRJ Consulting can save you potentially countless dollars as well as sleepless nights!

Thanks to today's technology, no matter where you live in the United States, SRJ Consulting can help you maximize your tax saving, minimize your IRS audit risk, and provide you with peace of mind. In- office as well as phone/Skype appointments are available for your convenience.

What Our Clients Say

AAA+++++ It is a pleasure to recommend SRJ Consulting. Mr. Jhawar has a master’s degree in Accounting from the University of Illinois, credentials to practice before the IRS, and years of experience. Most important, he is highly ethical, professional, and in business year round, as the IRS is.

Denise PChicago, IL 4/11/2012

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.

Julien FAtlanta, GA 3/13/2016

I have relied upon the extraordinary knowledge and skills of SRJ Consulting in preparing my taxes for many, many years now. I actually think Shiv’s a genius at what he does…not just a tax professional, but a ‘tax professor’!

G. Sweas, Chicago, IL 2/19/2016

SRJ is the most caring, thoughtful, and professional accountants I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They have been taking care of several complex matters with a dedication, passion and grace that I never thought possible of a tax service. I could not recommend their services more and will be sending friends and family their way.

Shawn CChicago, IL 12/16/2015

It was my first year to deal with my tax since I was a new comer from China. I was confused because of a tax treaty between the US and Chinese governments. SRJ did some perfect researches on my case and eventually found out the best solution. It was a great experience. I highly recommend people to enjoy their service.

Youwei Y,  Evanston, IL 8/20/2015

Shiv and Company are simply the best. I will never do my own taxes again!

Stephanie R,  Chicago, IL  4/13/2016

Shiv has been doing taxes for our family for years. I have compared him to other services by having my taxes done elsewhere and then going to Shiv. He consistently saves me money. He always stays current with changes in the tax law. In fact, after completing my taxes for this year, I received a call from him recommending changes I should make for the upcoming year to make sure I had the new tax laws working for me. I would trust no one else. I know when Shiv does our taxes that I will never have problems with the IRS. He stands behind all his work.

Laurie M, Rockton, IL 2/28/2015

I have been filing my taxes with them for two years now and had no problems whatsoever. Great work! Also, I am an international student, which makes tax filing more complicated; however, SRJ made it very simple and took care of everything.

Bruno A, Chicago, IL 8/17/2014

I am a Canadian, working in the US under a work visa. Which make my tax preparation a little bit complicated for myself. I went to SRJ Consulting, and they have prepared my tax forms quickly, and accurately. No doubt, they have proficiency in their field and they know what they do. I recommend them for personal tax preparation for persons with a work visa, and non-US residents.

Houcine R, Chicago, IL 9/8/2013

I highly recommend SRJ Consulting for accounting and tax preparation. He has been helping me with my business and personal taxes for many years. He made filing my tax returns a completely stress-free process. Extremely thorough and patient with all my questions and would recommend him to anyone! Shiv has a calm demeanor, superior organizational skills, and in-depth expertise. He is always accessible and very responsive.

Tom G, Chicago, IL 3/23/2012

I have relied on Shiv at SRJ for the past 3 years now to file my taxes and I cannot recommend him enough! He is not only trustworthy but also a rare blend of friendly, helpful and professional. He has always been able to accommodate my schedule, even when I’ve waited to the last minute to set up an appointment!
