Historically, the Texas Comptroller’s Hotel Data Search tool provided hotel tax information as reported by hotels.
Senate Bill 1086 passed during the 85th legislative session now prohibits state agencies from posting hotel receipts information from a business on a public website. However, users may access Hotel Occupancy Tax data using our Secure Information and File Transfer (SIFT) site. A user login is required to comply with Tax Code Section 156.155.
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.
