Our office is compiling the 2019 Sheriffs’ and Constables’ Fees report as required under Texas Local Government Code Section 118.131. This law requires each commissioners court to set fees charged for civil services by the sheriffs and constables and directs that these fees be reported to the Comptroller.
By law, these fees must be set before October 1 of each year and reported to the Comptroller’s office no later than October 15. Failure to meet this deadline will result in 2018 fees remaining in effect throughout 2019. Please be aware that even if the county has not changed fees, the county is still responsible for reporting that information to the Comptroller’s office.
If there are no fee changes, please review the fees to make sure they are correct.
The 2019 Sheriffs’ and Constables’ Fees report will be available on our Program’s page on January 1, 2019.
If you need assistance with the report, please contact Ron Gipson of our Data Analysis and Transparency Division at 1-800-531-5441, ext. 6-8530.
In 2015, the Texas Legislature passed House Bill 855, which requires state agencies to publish a list of the three most commonly used Web browsers on their websites. The Texas Comptroller’s most commonly used Web browsers are Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Apple Safari.
