Bellaire, “The City of Homes”, has an established, distinctive business community. While known best as a residential enclave in the midst of Houston, Bellaire is also home to over 1,000 business entities, including medical and professional practices, retailers, restaurants and financial institutions.
The commercial and financial success of that business community is important to the quality of life and stability of property values in Bellaire and near-by neighborhoods. For that reason, at the beginning of 2015, the Bellaire Business Association was formalized with the stated mission of promoting local businesses, providing professional networking opportunities and fostering local economic development.
The Bellaire Business Association is incorporated in the state of Texas and as an IRS 501(c)(6) chamber of commerce. Contributions and sponsorships to the Bellaire Business Association are not tax deductible as charitable contributions. Consult your tax advisor for possible business deduction eligibility.
