Overview of Texas Taxes

The Texas Comptroller's office serves the state by collecting more than 60 separate taxes, fees and assessments, including local sales taxes collected on behalf of more than 1,400 cities, counties and other local governments around the state.

Disaster Resources

On May 11, 2015, Governor Abbott declared a state of disaster in Bosque, Clay, Denton, Eastland, Gaines, Montague and Van Zandt counties.

On May 15, the Governor amended the disaster declaration to include these counties: Cook, Grimes, Hood, Navarro, Smith and Wise.

Our 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.

Sales Tax – ENERGY STAR® Sales Tax Holiday

Memorial Day is May 25 this year. The holiday coincides with the annual ENERGY STAR® Sales Tax Holiday (May 23-25) when Texas shoppers get a break from state and local sales and use taxes on purchases of certain energy-efficient products.
