So far I have been duly impressed with the services and counsel of SmartCLoud CPA, LLC. Paulina and Eli are clearly consummate professional experts who have provided excellent counsel to date. It has been a true pleasure to make this relationship for critical guidance that I was seeking. I would recommend vigorously for those of high earning potential who need intelligent and honest feedback.

I have worked with Eli Keren from SmartCloud since 2016. Eli is easily the most responsive and proactive person I work with regarding my US business. He is well-informed, gives good advice, and always presents options – this makes it much easier for me to make good decisions quickly. Eli could give seminars in how to provide outstanding customer service. I recommend Eli and SmartCloud unreservedly. Eli is simply the best!

Paulina worked with me on tax planning and tax preparation for my personal tax return. She did such a great job – so much better than my previous accountant!!! I was also able to save on taxes beyond what I had been deducting in the past. I really recommend Paulina and Eli and their services!!!!

I have worked with Eli and the team for two years now. I started with tax strategy and filings for one company in the first year, and now, I have given them all my businesses.

Very professional and clear in communication.

Dr. Varun Chowdhary

Eli and Paulina are absolutely fantastic to work with. They are very quick to respond to emails and always address my questions and concerns in an organized and comprehensive manner. Their level of enthusiasm and professionalism is evident in their work, and I am definitely going to be a long-term customer. They are honest, completely online, informed regarding physician related issues, and are always looking out for your best interest. Thanks!

“I have worked with Eli Keren and Paulina on income tax and consulted with them on tax reduction strategy. In the past couple years, I have realized that as a W2 employee, “it isn’t what you earn its what you keep” and a lot of what I earn I found I do NOT keep! Doctors are notoriously bad with money, but for the savvy physician who is employed by a hospital network or owns a private practice, Eli and Paulina are for you. For my personal situation, my wife owns a business and I am a W2 employee. If you think there is nothing that can be done to lower your taxes as a W2 employee you are wrong. Eli and Paulina have some advanced strategies that are legal and ethical. Who knew you could do positive things for the environment and save money on taxes? The fact of the matter is, the incentives are there because Uncle Sam wants you to participate in them, but most people can’t because too many large income earners don’t pay enough in taxes. These are people in business and real estate (classes of people the government already gives incentives too). You can get incentives too for investing in various arenas, but you have to connected and in the know. Eli and Paulina can do this for you. Do your own vetting, but I am finding that the connections they have given have already extensively gone through this process. Even if I didn’t enact the more advanced strategies, the small business tips for my wife would have paid SmartCloud’s fee a few times over in year one. And if you don’t like what they offer, they will refund your consulting fee. Yes, there are scams out there, but SmartCloud is not one of them. You will be leveraging experienced professionals to save you money and increase your bottom line. Eli will put his name on your tax return with these strategies and they have been nothing but supportive of the many questions anyone would have in doing their due diligence in this process. You build businesses with honesty and reputation, and SmartCloud is doing just that. In short, do you want to be like everyone else, or do you want an edge that allows you to build generational wealth for your family or just more discretionary income? Eli and Paulina can help get you there, and I have been very impressed with their product and service. They have put the work into creating a sound business model in a market that needs it (physicians), and its up to you to take a small leap of faith and let them help you too.”

Dr. Jayanta Mukherjee

“I am a busy physician, Paulina connected with me on Linked, initially i was hesitant to work with Eli & Paulina. But then I was very satisfied with the results. I would recommend SmartCloud CPA to medical professionals who want to save on taxes and receive both basic and advanced tax reduction strategies. They even spoke with me on a Sunday. They are very easily reachable and seem to give you great advice.”

Tobechi (Tobie) Okoronkwo, Board Certified Anesthesiologist

“I connected with Eli and Paulina of SmartCloud via LinkedIn and I have already received an endless amount of information and support. All of my questions are answered promptly and they are very easily reachable by email. The advice they gave is priceless and was not offered by my previous CPA. Being an independent contractor does have a lot of benefits, and the SmartCloud team is helping me to actually see those benefits. I am confident that all of the tax savings are legal and will not be an issue if I were to be audited. I look forward to working with them more and seeing how all of the changes come to fruition. Thank you SmartCloud!”

Dr. Haris Turalic, Cardiologist

“Eli and Paula are wonderful. They helped my medical office business tremendously. Both of them work well as a team. The cost of the services is reasonable. I signed up with them for personalized business advice on how to save on taxes. I am so impressed with their knowledge that I hired them to do my taxes. I recommend Smart Cloud CPA without any reservations.”

Dr. Sandra Doyle, Chicago IL

“I sought out a CPA online after writing a check to Uncle Sam this year following the loss of classic popular tax deductions in 2018. Eli and Paulina were amazing in introducing this already tax savvy medical professional in helping me lay out a feasible tax reduction plan. Not only is SmartCloud CPA well-organized, tech savvy and professional, this company is very kind and trustworthy. I highly recommend them for all high income professionals! You’ll wish you met them sooner!”

Syed S. Hasan, MD, MPH Gastroenterology & Hepatology

“We were fortunate to work with Paulina this year for our taxes and she did an amazing job! She is prompt, professional and extremely competent.”

Dr. Joshua Martin, Physiatrist

“SmartCloud works only with doctors, so as a physician it was a no brainer for me to seek their help with my taxes and tax planning. They explained useful and physician-relevant strategies for reducing and preparing taxes. Paulina and Eli are professional, very knowledgeable, and friendly. I highly recommend this company for income tax preparation and tax reduction.”

Dr. TJ Ahn, Podiatrist, Medical Coach & Consultant

“Eli Keren has been my CPA since 2014. He’s been doing business accounting for my medical practice and other businesses I own. One of the things that I want to mention is how much money Eli has been saving my business, both with tax planning and maximizing deductions. As a business owner, one of my biggest expenses is income tax. Doctors like us… we focus on taking care of patients and often we do not take the time or have knowledge as far as tax planning and tax reduction strategies are concerned. That is where Eli Keren and SmartCloud CPA, LLC come in. He’s very helpful! Thanks to him I’ve saved thousands and thousands of dollars on taxes. I would advise everyone to give him a chance. If you have the opportunity to meet or talk with him, I’m sure he’ll provide the same services for your medical practice!”

Doug Reitz, Tech Consultant

“Eli is a joy to work with. He led my company through a complicated topic and handily addressed some errors which had been made by our previous accountant. He made suggestions about accounting practices to make our daily and annual book keeping easier. I have worked with him for over a decade now and when he opened SmartCloud CPA, I was thrilled at the level of technology he embraced. Paulina is a welcome addition to what I think of as “My guys” (because everyone is a “Guy” in Chicago), a critical part of my professional network. They are warm and interesting people as well, and I always look forward to our meetings.”
