Eli Keren | CPA and Tax Reduction Strategist 

I started Ratio CPA to help my clients save money. I do more than tax preparation. Over 20 years of tax and accounting experience allows me to prepare tax strategies that are effective, proactive, custom, and streamlined, saving the average client tens of thousands of dollars annually on taxes – every year.

I am deeply dedicated to serving my clients and to helping them fulfill and even exceed their financial goals.

I personally know what it takes to be a winner. I have successfully competed at the highest collegiate level in track and field. I have the temperament, discipline, and pacing of a long-distance runner. I understand commitment and dedication are required for long-term success and I apply those qualities accordingly.

Eli is the Founder and CEO of Ratio CPA. His athletic ethics and head for finances drove him to earn a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the School of Business at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Eli is a Licensed Certified Public Accountant, practicing since 2001. Illinois CPA License #065.028362.
