Robert Garcia CPA, PLLC

Robert Garcia CPA, PLLC I believe in supporting the community and helping each other succeed along the way. I founded my firm in 2013 with the sole purpose to support the small business community by providing high-end services not traditionally afforded to them.
(20)

I graduated Suma Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting, as well as a Masters of Accountancy from UTSA . I received my CPA designation in 2011. I gained experience while working at KPMG, a Big 4 Accounting firm, as well as a variety of critical roles with both privately and publicly held companies. I've been married to my college sweetheart Lily going on 5 years. We have three handsome boys, Azael who is 4 going on 21 and Arlo who just turned 3 and does everything his older brother does and Adriel who is 1. I enjoy playing softball, watching football and grilling with friends and family. My favorite beer is Modelo.

Mission: Helping promote the growth and success of start-up and small business.

So it’s Tax Season and you can only imagine how many questions we get at this time.

One of the most common questions is “what can I write off”, so here is a list to help get you started.

We will be releasing some additional industry specific lists soon.

Please share and help your small business friends get all the deductions they’re afforded.

📒 Use this list of common small business tax deductions to help prepare your tax return and for future planning.

To be deductible, the IRS says a business expense must be ordinary (common in your industry) and necessary (needed to run the business, such as supplies). Expenses must be for business, not personal purposes.

New Governors order for Texas.Occupancy rates will be decreased to 50%
12/29/2020

New Governors order for Texas.

Occupancy rates will be decreased to 50%

Under Governor Abbott’s most current state COVID-19 order (GA-32) areas in which the number of COVID hospitalized patients as a percentage of total hospital capacity exceeds 15% for seven consecutive days are deemed "high hospitalization" areas. If an area becomes a “high hospitalization” area, then any business with a 75% occupancy limit under GA-32 is reduced to only 50% occupancy limit.

On December 22 Bexar County hospitals reached 15.1% COVID patients. Today marks the seventh consecutive day above 15%.

Therefore, the reduced 50% occupancy limits will go into effect on December 29, 2020. More information: https://dshs.texas.gov/ga32/

12/23/2020

Here are some additional provisions in the stimulus package:

Allowing the deduction of business expenses paid for with forgiven Paycheck Protection Program loans.

Extension of the special charitable contribution provisions enacted for 2020 through 2021.

Extensions, in some cases permanently, of many of the regularly expiring tax breaks that had been scheduled to expire at the end of 2020.

Enhancements to the Child Tax Credit and the Earned Income Tax Credit for low-income families.

Restoration of the 100 percent business meals deduction for two years to help the restaurant industry.

Allowing COVID-19-related expenses to qualify for the above-the-line educator expense deduction.

Clarification that certain financial aid received by college students and forgiveness of Economic Injury Disaster Loans to small businesses are excluded from income,

Extension of the credit for paid sick and family leave enacted as part of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act through March 31, 2021.

Extension of the employee retention credit through June 30, 2021.

Extension of the time allotted for repayment of employee Social Security taxes deferred under a presidential memorandum through the end of 2021.

As Hispanic heritage month is coming to an end. We are honored to be featured by Latinx Noise on the last day!

🤎 We want to give love and support to our Latinx community ! * Echale Ganas* 💪🏼

💃🏻 6 facts about Hispanic Heritage Month:

1️⃣ National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15 to October 15

2️⃣ National Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America

3️⃣ The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson

4️⃣ It was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period

5️⃣ It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988

6️⃣ The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico celebrates their independence on September 16th.

It’s the last day of Hispanic Heritage Month! And Robert and Lily are our last features. Check out what they’re doing for education in San Antonio 📚. Also check out our previous posts to learn about other Latinx Noise Makers from across the state and country 🥳. Hope you enjoyed this series! 👇🏼

While they run their small accounting firm, they’re also giving back to San Antonio educators and those community members seeking higher education. Through their firm, Robert and Lily created a scholarship to help bridge the funding gap for those seeking higher education while also hoping to reduce some of the burden that comes with student debt. Currently, their firm commits $1,000 per year ($500 per semester). The scholarship is designed for entering freshman and sophomores who have been accepted or are currently attending any of the Alamo Community College District and/or UTSA. “We are a small firm but we are committed to helping those in our community improve themselves and in turn those around them,” Robert says. In addition to their scholarship initiative, Robert and Lily are committed to supporting local teachers. Through the collaboration with other small businesses, their firm helped to create teach appreciation packages that consisted of donated bath and body products from The Carmel Soap Company and delicious chocolate desserts from Delice Chocolatier & Patisserie San Antonio. Through a local educators Facebook group, they selected 12 teachers to support. Education is important to the Garcia’s, so much so that even championed 5 Little Libraries in their community, allowing kids to book swap and become encouraged to read more. You can learn more about their community efforts, the scholarship and their firm by following them on IG and FB @ Robert Garcia CPA, PLLC.

How can anyone in the Senate, especially the GOP members, go home with no bill passed?

House passed a bill 2 months ago, which the Senate sat on and now the GOP can’t even agree internally on their own bill while Americans are suffering.

This is disappointing to say the least but until we stop playing sides and demand more from our leaders, they will continue to put their needs before yours.

Update: No movement on the stimulus package, including stimulus checks or unemployment payments (federal benefits expired last week).

It's also worth noting that majority leaders in the Senate have already gone home for the weekend and are not negotiating. That's significant because the House has passed a bill, but the Senate has not.

Currently, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) are working directly with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.
