Comptroller's Disaster Resources
The Comptroller’s office provides a variety of resources to help affected persons recover from man-made and natural disasters. Persons who have property in Texas that has been damaged or destroyed by a disaster can claim an exemption from sales tax on labor charges to repair the damage.
In addition, business owners affected by a disaster can request an extension of time to file a tax return and to pay any taxes due. The Comptroller will grant extensions up to 90 days. For more information, or to request a tax filing extension, call 1-800-252-5555.
For information about disaster related sales tax exemptions, see Disasters and Texas Sales Tax.
Below is a list of disaster resources available from the Comptroller’s office, as well as from other state and federal offices.
If you cannot find answers to your disaster relief questions in these resources, please contact us at Texas Tax Help or at 1-800- 252-5555.
