Jeff is a very precise and calculated accountant, business man that really understands business inside and out! He's not just a numbers guy however, really wants to learn every aspect of the business he is working with. Jeff was a recommendation from another friend of mine in the manufacturing business and said, "Jeff is the best you will find" I took his word and we are really pleased with Jeff's vast knowledge of accounting and always staying abreast of the new tax laws that are continually changing. I highly recommend Jeff and his team.

One Stop for all your tax needs. Inquired about Inc vs LLC vs C and S Corp. Jeff took the time to explain the advantages of each selection and the tax implications, going forward. He is handling my tax filings and he will always be my first choice of vendor for personal and business filings. Professional and accurate. Great service and a friend. Highly recommended.

Jeff Travis, CPA

Jeffrey B. (Jeff) Travis is currently practicing as an accountant in the Chicagoland area specializing in health care professionals, restaurants, real estate and construction, and manufacturing companies. The majority of his clients are physicians. Since the majority of Jeff’s clients are also “start-up” companies, his expertise in accounting software, consulting and taxes makes his services an excellent choice for any entrepreneur.

His career in public accounting started at a mid-size CPA firm. After ten years working for another mid-size suburban CPA firm, Jeff started his own firm in July 1995. At this time, Jeff’s interpersonal skills of presenting tax and accounting seminars at many hospitals in Chicago in front of resident, fellow and attending physicians blossomed into a practice niche for individual and business clients throughout the United States as many of clients moved out of the area and began their careers in other states.

Because of this, Jeff’s knowledge of taxes of a variety of states is valuable to understand the tax ramifications of moving to a different state, including the US territories.

Jeffrey B. (Jeff) Travis is a graduate of Northern Illinois University with a B A in Accountancy. He was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. He is the son of an immigrant father and his mother was born in Chicago as well. Jeff lives in Chicago with his wife and four children.
