Sol Schwartz, CPA
Sol Schwartz began his career as a CPA in 1960 with the firm of Arthur Andersen & Co. in Houston. After 5 years with that firm, he received an offer to join a local firm that was merging into a national firm. As a result, at age 29 he became the youngest partner admitted to that national firm. Shortly thereafter, the national firm asked him to move to San Antonio to take charge of a new office to be opened here.
In 1980, Sol left that national firm and founded Sol Schwartz & Associates, P.C. His vision was to have a tax and accounting firm that would be recognized as the eminent source for tax planning and compliance, along with providing accounting and audit services. To achieve this, the firm concentrated on providing the highest quality in training and research information for its staff. In addition, Sol participated on a national level in the American Institute of CPA’s tax division. He was chosen to chair the committee to review the tax laws regarding partnerships. The recommendations of his committee were presented to Congress. He also served on the AICPA committee to revise the tax laws under Subchapter S. In recognition of his achievement in these areas, he was invited to speak on these subjects at the University of Virginia Tax Law Institute and the Ohio State Tax Law Institute.
Today Sol Schwartz & Associates has grown to be one of the largest local accounting firms in San Antonio. Sol is still active as Chairman and works regularly on client matters.
