About Me

Oscar Javier Ornelas is a tax attorney licensed in Texas and New Mexico and is admitted to practice before the United States Tax Court. He is also fluent in Spanish. As a licensed CPA, Ornelas understands the economic and financial consequences of his clients’ tax concerns – not just the law that applies to a client’s tax issues. The Ornelas Firm advises clients with respect to tax audits and collections; excise taxes; US tax compliance for US expatriates; international tax (including tax treaty issues, FATCA and FBAR); state income/property/transfer taxes; charitable organization formation and governance; federal partnership/corporate tax planning; entity setup/restructuring/merger/dissolution; small business consulting and contracting; asset acquisitions/sales; and collections/debt recovery.  While the firm’s principal office is located in El Paso, Texas, the firm also maintains offices in Albuquerque, NM and San Antonio, TX (by appointment only) to service clients throughout Mexico, Texas and New Mexico.
