  1. Hi everyone! I have a question about the Mexican laws for part time workers with regards to paid vacation. I have been researching a bit and this is what I understood so far: The law is the same for part time and full time workers. Vacation pay is calculated with the "daily rate" as 6 days of salary for the 1st year, 8 days of salary for the 2nd year, and so on (following the specific table with length of service and paid days off). They need to have worked for a year before they can receive their vacation (pay). There is a minimum of 25% holiday bonus for while they are on vacation. My question is as follows: According to the Mexican law, how would I approach this for (for example) my cleaning lady who works 1 day a week? Is she entitled to 6 working days off (theoretically 6 weeks in the year)? If she decides not to take the vacation, I assume she would still be entitled to the vacation pay for that year, is that correct? Is the 25% bonus applicable only if she takes the vacation, not if she decides to continue working? Or is it something she is entitled to regardless of whether she takes days off? I would appreciate anyone who could shed some light on this for me, or point me in the right direction. Thank you! ______________________ These are some of the websites that I referenced: https://insights.tetakawi.com/mexico-labor-law-employee-benefits-basics https://content.next.westlaw.com/3-502-9997?transitionType=Default&contextData=(sc.Default)&__lrTS=20200606164632130&firstPage=true https://yucalandia.com/answers-to-common-questions/labor-law-for-household-employees-in-mexico-what-must-we-pay/
  2. Need recommendations for a tax accountant to fill out the US tax forms reporting Mexican bank account information. This will be sent to my US accountant for my 2019 US taxes. Can send a PM if needed. Many thanks. "Any U.S. citizen with foreign bank accounts totaling more than $10,000 must declare them to the IRS and the U.S. Treasury, both on income tax returns and on FinCEN Form 114." "Americans with foreign accounts must also submit Form 8938 to the IRS in addition to the largely redundant FBAR form."
  3. Was reading about new Mexican laws on the internet today and noticed this new anti-meme law that could carry penalties of up to two years in jail for memes of cyberbullying nature. I never post memes which have insulting images on my Facebook, BUT I do think it is good to be informed of laws in the countries where we reside. 'Anti-meme law' could see Mexicans jailed for posting insulting images: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/anti-meme-law-mexico-insulting-images-veracruz-a8567041.html What are your opinions? Do you think the 'Anti Meme Law' is a good OR bad idea?
