Taxpayer Returns

data.texas.gov | Last Updated 25 May 2018

See the attached PDF for a detailed description of each tax type. The Comptroller of Public Accounts is charged by statute, Tex. Gov’t Code § 403.0142, with reporting and posting the amounts of revenue remitted from each Texas municipality and county for taxes whose location information is available from tax returns. The revenue is presented by county only because specific cities could not be definitively determined from the report data. Returns submitted directly by local governments are open records and include their names and addresses. Due to confidentiality restrictions, amounts reported by businesses cannot be provided when less than four businesses report for a specific county. This data is posted quarterly, six months after the end of the quarterly data period to allow for collection actions when needed.
