State comptroller says ‘Help is available’

Thursday, March 26, 2020 by Tai Moses

Helping hands are coming from a lot of surprising places these days. One of those places is the Texas Comptroller’s Office, which has kindly reached out to say it “knows that during periods of economic hardship, paying or remitting taxes and fees on time can feel like an extra burden when there’s so much uncertainty.” Hence, the comptroller is offering assistance to businesses that may be struggling to pay their full February sales tax amounts. Help comes “in the form of short-term payment agreements, and in most instances, waivers of penalties and interest.” Businesses are advised to call the Enforcement Hotline at 800-252-8880 to learn about options for remaining in compliance and avoiding interest and late fees.
