AUSTIN — During the months of February and March, the Comptroller’s office will conduct free sales taxpayer seminars across the state. At these seminars, taxpayers can learn how to properly fill out tax forms, and file and pay taxes electronically. Information about e-services will also be available to help taxpayers manage their accounts online. Comptroller representatives will be on hand to answer questions and provide assistance to attendees.

New taxpayers are especially encouraged to attend these overviews of sales tax responsibilities for buyers, sellers and service providers. No registration is required.

“We want to empower Texas business owners by making resources and information accessible. Conducting these seminars and making our team of tax specialists available provides guidance for businesses,” said R.J. DeSilva, spokesperson for the Comptroller’s office.
