Avalara MyLodgeTax Announces Partnership with Association of Independent Hospitality Professionals
Avalara, Inc. (NYSE:AVLR), a leading provider of tax compliance automation software for businesses of all sizes, today announced a strategic partnership agreement between Avalara MyLodgeTax, the company’s tax compliance software division for the lodging industry, and the Association of Independent Hospitality Professionals (AIHP), a member-driven, non-profit organization focused on solving the challenges of being an independent lodging property owner and professional host in a changing travel landscape.
The new partnership will provide AIHP members with the tax information, technology tools and resources they need to better understand and comply with lodging tax requirements across the United States. Avalara MyLodgeTax provides solutions to effectively collect, manage, and remit lodging and occupancy tax, and manage licenses on behalf of AIHP members.
Avalara MyLodgeTax automates and streamlines a vast and complicated set of occupancy tax filing requirements involving hundreds of tax agencies across the U.S. Anyone involved in the lodging industry, including homeowners, property managers, corporate housing providers, hotels and motels, and online travel agencies can count on Avalara MyLodgeTax to manage this complexity on their behalf.
“Lodging tax compliance is increasingly an operational burden that takes property owners and managers’ focus off driving more bookings,” says Rob Stephens, co-founder and general manager of Avalara MyLodgeTax. “Managing the correct taxes, filing reports, remitting taxes, and navigating the various state and local licensing requirements can be an onerous task. We’re excited to partner with AIHP and provide their members with tax technology solutions to simplify their complex tax and licensing requirements, and reduce compliance costs.”
