Recovering local tax revenue in Blackwell, Oklahoma

Sep 2, 2021 8:11:45 AM

Tucked south of the Kansas border sits an Oklahoma town that wants to do right by its residents and business owners.

Blackwell, Oklahoma (pop. 7,092) wants to ensure that the town’s finances are accurate and transparent.

That's why this community's leaders have selected Azavar to perform a comprehensive slate of compliance audits on revenue such as franchise fees and utility taxes, short-term rentals and HOT taxes.

How small municipalities can manage compliance audits

Every town needs to be reviewing revenue regularly. However, many municipalities—especially smaller ones—simply don’t have the in-house resources or staff time to take on technical projects like these.

That’s why we’re so excited to lighten the load for cities like Blackwell. 

Through a partnership with Azavar, small communities gain access to revenue experts and market-leading technical knowledge. Our team uncovers where revenue is leaking, stops the losses, and reclaims revenue for the community as outlined by statute.
