Fighting tax crime is a team effort.

The Criminal Investigations Division (CID) actively cooperates with local, state and federal law enforcement authorities to pursue tax cases in three ways:

  • Resource - helping obtain certain types of information held by the Comptroller's office
  • Referral - accepting cases from other investigators when their tax-related cases could benefit from CID expertise
  • Investigation - assisting primary agencies with state tax aspects of criminal investigations

If a law enforcement case under investigation may involve intentional criminal conduct in violation of state tax laws administered by the Comptroller, please email CID Chief Jim Harris or call him at 512-463-3901.
