About the Company
Eftex Business Services, LLC (Eftex) was founded in 2012 in Fulshear, Texas. We serve small businesses and individuals in Southeast Texas, including Fulshear, Katy, Richmond, Sugar Land, Houston and the surrounding areas. We provide our clients with exceptional services in the following areas:

The name ‘Eftex’ is derived from EF (for Fulshear) and TEX (for Texas). Flora Oni, the founder, who has lived in different continents of the world, still resides in Fulshear, Texas and chose the business name so she never forgets where it all started. In August 2017, Eftex registered Eftex Tax Solutions with the Texas Secretary of State to effectively market the business’ core services.
