Jackie Smits-Pillai, EA, PB
Enrolled Agent, Tax Consultant

Jackie Pillai is an Enrolled Agent who is federally-licensed and unrestricted as to which taxpayers she can represent and what types of tax matters she can handle.

At a young age she initiated her study at the English Boarding School Ridgeway in Kensington, United Kingdom. In California she attended high school and college. To further her schooling in foreign languages, she attended International Baccalaureate in The Hague, Netherlands. Jackie has lived in several countries, still travels when possible, and is an avid learner of new languages and cultures. She feels fortunate having had the opportunity of studying abroad which has provided her with many friends and business contacts worldwide.

After moving back to the U.S., she joined a marketing firm in Phoenix, Arizona. Shortly thereafter she became a partner where she then re-structured the business and tripled national sales.
Jackie fell into the tax industry on a whim. She enjoyed finding ways to help taxpayers and businesses to save money on their taxes and therefore decided to master the tax laws and become an Enrolled Agent.

After completing the complex study of tax laws, she was awarded unlimited representation rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS. Unlike attorneys and CPAs, who are state-licensed and who may or may not choose to specialize in taxes, all enrolled agents specialize in taxation.

Jackie understands the importance of business, accounting and tax planning and together with her Strategic Partners works with clients in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties.
