Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs)
The Criminal Investigation Division works with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies in a variety of ways:
- Case resource -- Under Texas Tax Code §111.006(e), and other statutory authority, we can assist law enforcement in obtaining certain types of information held by the Comptroller's office.
- Case referral -- We also accept case referrals from other law enforcement agencies. This may occur when a law enforcement agency receives a tax-related case that could benefit from our expertise.
- Case investigation -- When an active criminal investigation develops a state tax angle, we are available to assist the primary agency with that aspect of its case.
Regional CID offices available to agencies for support are located in Abilene, Austin (headquarters), Corpus Christi, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston, Lubbock, Odessa, San Antonio, Tyler and Wichita Falls.
If you are investigating a case that may involve intentional criminal conduct against state tax laws administered by the Comptroller, please contact CID Deputy Chief James Harris at (512) 463-3901 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
