The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts prepares the state’s biennial budget estimate, required by the state constitution to be balanced. In addition, it administers 50 state taxes, including sales and use taxes that make up almost 25% of the state’s revenues, and processes 3.8 million tax returns a year.
“Using this system, we’re generating an additional $70 million per year for the state.”
— Lisa McCormack, Audit Division Area Manager, Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts
