Representative Terry Meza to Comptroller: Businesses Need Tax Relief  print page

IRVING Representative Terry Meza sent a letter to Comptroller Hegar today requesting that he provide immediate business assistance to bars and restaurants that have been ordered to shut down by both the Governor and local governments by deferring the sales tax, mixed beverage sales tax, and mixed beverage gross receipts tax; waive any penalties and pause any seizure activities until we have a stimulus plan for these businesses and their employees.

"Business owners in my district have expressed grave concerns about how they can keep their businesses afloat and their employees employed during this pandemic. It's an unfunded mandate - they've been forced to close through no fault of their own. They deserve immediate relief so they can keep serving our community through this crisis."
