The Comptroller sets up a franchise tax account for your business based on information provided from the Texas Secretary of State and other sources. The Franchise Tax Accountability Questionnaire allows you to update your entity's information with us online. This includes providing a mailing address, as well as establishing the tax responsibility beginning date and determining the first report due date for non-Texas entities.
Texas corporations, limited liability companies, limited partnerships and professional associations newly registered with the Texas Secretary of State; non-Texas corporations and limited liability companies newly registered with the Texas Secretary of State; and any other entity who has received a letter via mail from the Comptroller's office must complete the questionnaire online. The letter you received from the Comptroller's office contains the information you need to get started.
All other entities, whether Texas or non-Texas, must complete and submit a paper questionnaire.
