South Padre Island, Texas Establishes Short-Term Rental Compliance Program with Avenu – Harmari/LTAS

Harmari Is Deploying a Full-Service Short-Term Rental Compliance Program to help the City with growing tourism.

Centreville, Virginia (January 29, 2022) LTAS Technologies Inc. (Harmari) is pleased to announce that through a partnership with Avenu Insights & Analytics LLC, it will provide a Full-Service Short-Term Rental (STR) Compliance Program to the City of South Padre Island, TX. The Harmari Short-Term Rental (STR) solution provided by LTAS is the industry leader in providing a guaranteed accuracy of 95% for houses, 75% for condominiums and apartments, along with at least two supporting evidence screenshots.

“We are very excited to be working with an experienced partner that will enable us to provide full-service administration, compliance, and discovery of the entire short-term rental community within South Padre Island. There are over 6,500 STR listings advertised online across 80+ sites, and yet only 2,500 business licenses have been registered, creating a large gap in short-term rental compliance for the City,” shared Allen Atamer, CEO, Founder and Principal Engineer for Harmari STR.

The program is designed to also facilitate short-term rental business license renewals through Avenu’s public-facing, secure and mobile-ready registration portal. The full-service system provides a single login and payment platform that will enable City residents to pay for all required licenses and fees as well as a help desk center staffed with tax experts to answer any questions by phone or email.

“As the STR market continues to evolve and grow, it has raised ever increasing challenges that impact economic development, property rights, taxation, and revenue collection for local governments,” stated Avenu CEO, Paul Colangelo. “We are proud to help support South Padre Island as they strike a healthy balance between hospitality, community, and compliance with local taxation.”
