Texas Independent Automotive Association Hosts State Comptroller’s Office for February Meeting

The Texas Independent Automotive Association (TIAA) held their monthly members meeting on February 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the County Line BBQ on I-10 in San Antonio.

The night’s speaker was Andre Eames from the State Comptroller’s office. He talked about sales taxes, e-filing and making sure certain records are kept. He also let attendees in on a great tip: putting the number of the business owner on all the forms. Eames said they have experienced problems when calling on businesses about issues with their forms, oftentimes the Bookkeeper or Secretary doesn’t relay the message to the owner. By putting the owner’s contact information on all forms businesses can avoid this issue.

He also stated body kits, lift kits and performance upgrades are taxable along with the labor.

Next month’s meeting will be held on March 15 at 6:30 p.m. The location is TBA. The speaker will be from local channel KLRN. They will speak about how shops can donate a service for their upcoming 46th annual Blazing Gavels charitable auction. For more information about the auction please visit blazinggavels.com.
