Taxfyle lease underscores tech growth trends and increasing office demand in Miami


Miami – Avison Young negotiated a new 13,959-square-foot office lease with Tickmark, Inc., doing business as Taxfyle, an on-demand tax filing app that connects users to specialized tax professionals within minutes. Located within Mayfair in the Grove at 2911 Grand Avenue in Coconut Grove, Florida, the space marks Taxfyle’s expansion and relocation from Coral Gables.

Avison Young Principal and Miami Managing Director Donna Abood, Vice President Joe Abood, and Associate Peyton Dowd facilitated the transaction on behalf of the tenant. 

“Over the past decade, Miami has become a highly-regarded tech hub where innovative businesses such as Taxfyle can flourish,” said Donna Abood. “Due to market’s healthy economic fundamentals and persistent job growth throughout 2019, leasing activity remains robust throughout Miami-Dade, with an increasing number of office users considering walkable neighborhoods such as Coconut Grove over Downtown Miami and Brickell.”

Founded in 2015 by CEO Richard Lavina, CTO William Sahatdjian, and COO Michael Mouriz, Taxfyle connects businesses and individuals to licensed CPAs for their accounting and tax service needs. The company has 2,000 tax professionals serving 50,000 users through the app.

“We have experienced tremendous growth since we started in 2015 which will continue to ramp up since the recent launch of our B2B products,” said Mouriz. “We’ve hired against that growth across departments including in-house customer service, tech support, sales, marketing, legal, and accounting, and Avison Young has secured the ideal space for us that will allow for the continued expansion of our team and services.”

Over the next 12 months, Taxfyle expects to hire 20 to 30 professionals in various departments.
