Here at the Texas Comptroller's office, we've just gone through our busiest time of the year, the January tax-filing deadline, when monthly, quarterly and annual returns all come due on the same day. It's a deluge — more than 395,000 electronic returns in a month and 85,000 on the last day alone!

It's just one 24/7 job among many for our agency, which manages the finances of the nation's second-largest state and the world's 12th-largest economy.

We recently made a video about our workload here to highlight the hundreds of dedicated Comptroller employees it takes to pursue our missions — and to do so at the lowest possible cost.

Our work never ends — and neither do our efforts to work more efficiently. That's as it should be.

Watch for more videos soon, highlighting the divisions and the people who make the Comptroller's office the best state agency in Texas.

As always, let us know how we're doing via our customer service website, Twitter or Facebook. If you'd like to continue receiving "From the Desk of" emails, add your email address to the list.

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

Glenn Hegar
