Azavar News: Texas sales and use tax reviews

Jul 7, 2021 11:27:31 AM

Excited to welcome our new customer, Bellaire, Texas

More than a hundred years ago, this east Texas town was incorporated by a railroad executive specifically as a residential destination. Today, Bellaire is still known as the “City of Homes,” now for nearly 20,000 residents just a stone’s throw from Houston.

And we’re excited to announce that Bellaire, Texas is now part of our booming Texas customer base.

Bellaire Texas Azavar Customer

Our local-government revenue team is excited to get to work for this community and make sure Bellaire is getting all the revenue it’s due. Plus, we’re able to provide Sales/Use Tax reports through our Localgov platform so local leaders can make accurate, informed choices about the city’s financial health.

When’s the last time your finance department double-checked incoming revenue? Here’s a PDF checklist that points you to trouble spots, such as franchise fees, irregular borders, short-term rentals, and more. 

Some Bellaire highlights:

  • Want to be outside? Head to Evelyn’s Park Conservancy, located on the site of Bellaire’s first business, a plant nursery. Talk a stroll, experience butterflies up close, take a fitness class, or listen to live music. It’s a lovely nature-filled space for all ages.
  • No need to head into Houston to have a haute bite. Bellaire’s home to a wide array of tasty eateries, from date-night spots such as Costa Brava Bistro, smoked-meat delicacies from Charlies Bar-B-Que, and light morning bites from Dandelion Cafe.
  • For its size, Bellaire boasts a host of notable names, including Brent Spiner, best known for playing Data on Star Trek: Next Generation, and movie stars Randy and Dennis Quaid.
