The Rio Grande Valley Chapter of TSCPA survives because of its members! We welcome new members, and strive to maintain a professional, informative relationship with our membership.

Your local chapter works to keep you informed of current events, and communicates legislative issues that could effect our profession. Your volunteerism and continued support is the life blood of our Chapter.

The Rio Grande Valley Chapter of the TSCPA provides newsletters that will inform you of upcoming events, CPE, news, tax tips, and other important or amusing information.

Governor Abbott Appoints Local CPA to Texas Real Estate Commission

AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott has appointed Leslie Lerner Benjamin “Ben” Pena to the Texas Real Estate Commission for a term set to expire on January 31, 2027. The commission’s primary purpose is to protect the public in its dealings with real estate brokers and salespersons.
Benjamin “Ben” Pena of Bayview is Assurance Services Partner at Burton, McCumber & Longoria, LLP. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants. Additionally, he is a board member of the Brownsville Chamber of Commerce and a member of the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts and the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. Pena received a Bachelor of Business Administration from The University of Texas Pan American.

This appointment is subject to Senate confirmation.

CONGRATULATIONS!

The 2020 Chapter’s annual scholarship of $500 was awarded to Javier Trevino, Jr., who just graduated with his BBA in Accountancy and started the Master of Accountancy program at UTRGV. Javier has maintained a perfect GPA while working two part time jobs and accepting other responsibilities not common for a college student.

This scholarship was made possible because of your annual donations. To those members who donate to their local chapters when paying their annual dues, your TXCPA RGV chapter board extends a big Thank You! So that we can impact more students, we want to invite firms to sponsor at least one student through our local chapter. We invite interested firms to contact Katherine Martin or any of the current board members.

Steve Tillinger, CPA

I am very sad to be sharing with you the news of Steve Tillinger’s passing earlier this week. Steve was a brilliant CPA and incredible resource for the profession on the state and national levels. He taught Partnerships and S Corps for many years to Chapter members’. There will not be a service in Texas, and Steve will be buried out of state.

In Memoriam 2021

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of the following RGV Chapter member this year:
