Jorge Sillas, Owner
My name is Jorge Sillas, owner of Simple Tax of Laredo. I was born and raised in Laredo, TX.
I received my B.B.A. in Accounting in 2002 from Texas State University at San Marcos. I discovered my passion for numbers and accounting early on and have been fortunate to turn that passion into a profession.
My professional accounting career began by working days and nights as a Tax Analyst in the private sector. With a lot of hard work and long hours, I quickly climbed the corporate ladder to a Tax Accountant then a Sr. Tax Accountant and lastly a Tax Manager. This accounting path took me for a tour around Texas, from Laredo, San Marcos, San Antonio, Dallas, and back.
Ultimately, I returned to Laredo with substantial knowledge of the accounting world. I began preparing tax returns for friends and family members and slowly grew to provide tax prep services through referrals from friends and family. I thank my friends and family for entrusting me with one of the most important tasks in life.
Simple Tax of Laredo is committed to providing friendly professional tax services for our community. As an Annual Filing Season Program (AFSP) participant, I have limited representation rights, meaning I can represent clients whose returns I have prepared and signed before examination, customer service rep, and the Taxpayer Advocate Service. Those who do not participate in the AFSP have no representation rights.
It is our Goal to help you prepare and file your taxes by making the process Simple. We explain to you the steps that we take in preparing your taxes, as well as steps to prepare for next year’s tax season.
