Jim J. Ornelas, CPA
I am a sanguine, outgoing people person! So I am definitely not the stereotypical, introverted, serious, stoic CPA. I really enjoy the interaction with my clients and helping them, but I also enjoy the technical aspects of my work, tax research/tax planning and helping people resolve difficult and painful tax problems with the IRS/State!
I get a lot of joy making a difference in people’s lives and helping them in resolving stressful financial and tax situations. My one problem is perhaps that I care too much! I treat my clients as extended family and they feel that genuine care when they come into my office. Many have commented over the years about the warm, welcoming and sincere atmosphere they feel when in my office.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration & Accounting from California State University at Los Angeles. I also have a Masters of Divinity degree from Azusa Pacific University and a Doctor of Ministry degree from the same university. I pastored for many years here in Sacramento, but now I focus exclusively on tax and accounting work. I am also a member of the ASTPS (Association of Tax Problem Resolution).
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA and have five adult children. I have 30 years experience and expertise in small business accounting, tax planning and tax preparation, and over 20 years experience in IRS Tax Resolution.
Let Us Help
‘Closers’ have run their numbers, and they know that certain IRS problems can net them big fees. Sure, they’ll quote you a smaller fee during the so-called “financial analysis” in the beginning stages of the process – but they also know that there are lots of different ways that they can tack on additional fees during the process so that no matter what, they will get paid.
My team and I would like to invite you into a different kind of process.
Mind you – we are BULLDOGS when it comes to negotiating on behalf of our clients in front of the IRS. We have plenty of stories to prove it.
We want to fight for you – and you will never have to speak with the IRS yourself.
Click the button on below to take the first step. Feel free to poke around our site and discover why I’ve been called “The Most Trusted Tax Professional in Greater Sacramento.”
PS — If you are discussing your tax situation over the telephone with other firms, be sure to ask them one important question:
“Are you a licensed tax professional that is legally eligible to offer me tax advice, or are you a salesman?”
This is by far the single most important question you should ask anybody trying to offer you tax advice. If they are a salesperson, I highly encourage you to run quickly in the opposite direction.
PS–Already ready to come in?
I don’t blame you…many folks are fed up with the other options out there. Our schedule is very full…but if you call us at (916) 481-1025 or Email Us, we’ll give you two options for coming in right away! We will NOT make dealing with a tax professional as painful as it’s been in the past!
