Happy Cinco de Mayo and Upcoming Events

Wishing you and your family a festive and exciting
Mother's Day - Give her the gift of Adventure!
Have you considered touring China? Great gift for Mom and the entire family!

TAMACC, as a fundraising event, is providing an incredible opportunity for you to experience China from October 6 – 14, 2018. This amazing once in a lifetime adventure package is only $2,399 per person (based on double occupancy). Experience a 9-day, 4 city adventure in Beijing, Shanghai, Suzhou, and Hangzhou. There is also an optional tour to visit the ancient city of Xi’an to see the famous Terra-Cotta Warriors.

Traveling to China and experiencing the Great Wall of China, the gardens, temples, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, shows and arts; price bickering in the markets purchasing silks, jade, tea and medicines; eating so much Chinese food (did enjoy a full American buffet in the mornings but did need to take my own Cholula for a taste of home); interacting with such interesting people and emerging into the culture was truly an adventure. In fact, it was such an adventure I had to go back the second time. ~ Pauline Anton, TAMACC President, hanging out with new friends in China.

The Texas Tax Amnesty Program runs from May 1, 2018, through June 29, 2018.

The Texas Tax Amnesty Program will, under certain circumstances, provide delinquent taxpayers with relief from penalties and interest on tax due. Tax amnesty applies to periods prior to Jan. 1, 2018, and only includes liabilities that have not been previously reported to the Comptroller's office. It does not apply to accounts which have been certified to the Office of the Attorney General; accounts which are presently in litigation; periods that are currently under audit or for which a notice of audit has been issued; or accounts that have been reduced to judgment.
Additionally, the amnesty doesn’t apply to local motor vehicle tax, IFTA taxes, PUC gross receipts assessments or unclaimed property payments.
