Court Costs and Fees Publications Increasing Effectiveness, Efficiency and Savings

Following each regular session of the legislature, the Comptroller’s office identifies each law enacted by that legislature that imposes or changes the amount of a court cost or fee collected by the clerk of a district, county, statutory county, municipal, or justice court from a party to a civil case or a defendant in a criminal case.

The Comptroller’s office prepares a list of each court cost, fee, and fine imposed or changed and publishes it in the Texas Register not later than Aug. 1.

Lists of court costs, fees, and fines can be found at the Texas Register here:
