A Note on Taxes

The Comptroller’s office understands the tremendous strain the pandemic and its related closures have placed on businesses throughout our state. We’re grateful that virtually all of our taxpayers are doing their best to remain in compliance with Texas tax requirements, and we want to ease this burden whenever possible.

To aid Texas franchise taxpayers, we automatically extended the due date to file and pay 2020 Texas franchise tax reports to July 15, 2020.

We are also providing an extension of up to 90 days past the original due date to pay the motor vehicle tax due on purchases.

For businesses struggling to pay the full amount of sales taxes they collect from customers, a short-term payment agreement may be available.

For more information on these accommodations, please see Resources for taxpayers and small business assistance below.
