Katy Estrada, CPA

If you have an expense that is partly for business and partly personal, separate the personal part from the business part.


My husband and I purchased a small business in Southern New Mexico and relocated in 2008. We felt this was the best move for our family, especially the children. I love what I’m doing too much to discontinue my CPA business though. I have continued to do what I love, just virtually via fax, internet, e-mail, and phone.

We moved to my home town of Animas, New Mexico and my husband is running the local grocery store, Bootheel Grocery, Inc. At the time of purchase, Tommy had 18 years experience in the liquor industry and for three of those years, he ran a liquor store in Las Cruces. So this purchase was a perfect fit for him and his career.

My son’s class has a whole seven students and Rachel’s class has sixteen. The one-on-one attention our kids receive is invaluable. The knowledge my children are 5th generation in the valley is also comforting.

The transition from city life to country living went smoothly. My phone numbers remained the same for ease of transition, but e-mail is still the best way to get a hold of me. The only change is my mailing address. I did miss the one-on-one I had in my daily client meetings in Albuquerque but I am now able to focus more of my time on taxpayers and projects rather than driving between appointments during the day.

Visitors are always welcome to the valley. I travel to the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area four to five times a year and Arizona twice a year to visit clients and assist where needed. Please contact me for scheduled times to make an appointment.
