Direct Pay Taxpayer Search

Search our records to find out if an entity has an active direct payment permit for paying Texas sales and use taxes.

Sellers must get a properly completed Texas Direct Payment Exemption Certification (PDF) from the direct pay permit holder. See Rule 3.288, Direct Payment Procedures and Qualifications.

Sellers are not required to confirm an entity's permit status to accept a direct payment exemption certification.

The database is updated nightly. If you are unable to find an entity that you believe holds a valid direct payment permit, you may contact us at Tax Help or call us at 1-800-252-5555.
