About Us

In 1991 Tim Phelan founded T.J. Phelan & Associates, LLC in an effort to help individuals & businesses prepare their tax returns.

T.J. Phelan & Associates, LLC specializes in preparing your returns to provide the greatest deductions allowable by law.

T.J. Phelan & Associates realizes that with the increased complexity of our tax code, it’s important to make the most of your money.

Unlike so many other tax preparers or national tax preparation chains with little or no training, we operate out of our homes, in your neighborhood, and do not pass on the overhead costs of running an office. Because of this when you come to T.J. Phelan & Associates, LLC you will have Tim Phelan, a registered CPA with extensive tax experience prepare your work, often at half the cost of other tax preparers.

Tim Phelan holds a Bachelors and Masters in Finance from IIT and Loyola University of Chicago, respectively. Tim also is a CPA, a member of both the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Illinois CPA Society.

Tim works closely in his tax practice with his wife Julie and their two associates, Alec Phelan and Luke Phelan.

T.J. Phelan & Associates, LLC’s philosophy is God, Family and Country in that order. We consider our clients to be family and we tailor our services to your specific needs.

We look forward to hearing from you.
