Announcing the Texas Taxpayer Bill of Rights

Texas Taxpayer Bill of Rights

April 13, 2015

It's hard for me to believe, but this weekend marked my 100th day serving as your Texas Comptroller.

From day one, I promised the taxpayers of this state an agency that puts their needs first, addresses concerns and issues in an efficient and respectful manner, fosters an environment of transparency and accountability and focuses on the core responsibilities of the State Comptroller's office.

With that promise in mind, I felt it was important to create a Texas Taxpayer Bill of Rights.

Primarily, this agency is tasked with the responsibility of collecting and safeguarding taxpayer dollars. And in doing so, we must never lose sight of the fact that we are here to serve you. My Taxpayer Bill of Rights is designed to ensure that the service you receive from our agency not only meets your needs, but exceeds your expectations.

Please take a moment to read about your rights as a taxpayer, and I hope you'll share this message with anyone you think might be interested. Also, let me know how I can best serve you by engaging with my office via our customer service website, Twitter or Facebook.

Thanks for all you do for Texas, and God bless,

Glenn Hegar
