Quick Start for:

Battery Sales Fee Refunds

All taxpayers must provide the following information when requesting a refund of taxes paid in error directly from the Comptroller's office:

  • signed letter stating fully and in detail the reason for the refund claim;
  • the amount of refund requested;
  • date when the tax was erroneously paid (begin and end date of the period);
  • copy of the invoice(s);
  • taxpayer name and number; and
  • Power of Attorney (01-137) or other written authorization, if being represented by an authorized agent.

Send tax refund requests to:

Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts
111 E. 17th Street
Austin, TX 78774-0100

If the seller refunds the full purchase price of a battery that has been returned, there is no sale, so the buyer should receive a refund of the battery sales fee as well as the sales tax paid.

For refund information related to Battery Sales Fee, please call (800) 531-5441, ext. 3-4545.
