our history

A small tax preparation company expanded across Texas – our story is one of inspiration & community support. Learn more about our past history and the vision that VillZap-Columbia Tax Service has for our customers as we progress into 2021.

taxes, audits, legal help, and more

over 30 years of helping our local communities

Before you choose to work with us, it’s important to understand how we got started and the values that keep us going.

Before Columbia Tax Service merged with VillZap, our founder worked for Legal Aid in La Cruces, NM. During that time he worked hard to develop his legal skills when it came to tax, civil, and immigration issues and used them to open Columbia Tax Service to help families from around the state of Texas. New Mexico, and Illinois.

As we grew, our founder realized that our customer-base needed more than just tax and legal help. We expanded our services to provide essential services like education, memberships, record keeping, voter education, and more.
