Shiv R. Jhawar: Mastery in Tax, Trust in Every Act
Welcome! I’m Shiv R. Jhawar, and I’ve been immersed in the intricate world of tax practice for over 40 years. Since 1979, I’ve been an IRS-licensed Enrolled Agent, taking pride in meticulously preparing U.S. income tax returns and defending clients in IRS audits, appeals, and tax collection issues.
The Distinction of an Enrolled Agent
The Enrolled Agent (EA) designation is the highest credential the IRS awards. “Enrolled” means the individual has the United States Department of the Treasury license to practice. This designation comes with rigorous training and U.S. Treasury Department recognition. The federal government, not the states, issues EA licenses, which means that unlike CPAs, who can only practice in certain states, an EA can practice across all 50 states.
An Illustrious Career
Accolades have humbled me throughout my career. From a notable mention on Wikipedia to being honored with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award in 2018, every milestone has been a testament to dedication. Further, it fills me with pride that SRJ Consulting has been rated among the top tax Preparers in Chicago.

Where Tech Meets Taxation
In an era driven by technology, I’ve seamlessly integrated AI technology into my tax practice. Marrying my passion for technology with tax expertise, I’ve developed accounting software that helps me do my work accurately and on time.

Residing in Chicago, I enjoy diving into deep meditation, discovering delightful vegetarian cuisines, writing articles, watching international cricket, and ensuring a good night’s sleep in my spare time.
Over the years, I’ve often heard, “When Shiv talks taxes, you listen.” Such endorsements are heartwarming and a testament to trust cultivated over years. Rest assured, I’m here to offer clarity, expertise, and peace in all your tax matters.
