Texas Franchise Tax Report Notices

Comptroller Switches to Electronic Notices

The Texas Comptroller has changed its annual franchise tax notification method. Historically the agency mailed the annual notice to the mailing address it had on file for the entity. This year, the Texas Comptroller is only mailing notices to first-year filers and those for which it does not have an email address. Do not forget to check your email, including your spam folder, for your franchise tax notice this year!

Annual franchise tax reports are due on May 16 this year. Even if you have no tax due or no activity to report, you are required by law to file a franchise tax report and information report every year. Online filing is easy with WebFile — you will need your Texas taxpayer number and WebFile number, both listed on your franchise tax report notice.

If you need assistance with your 2022 franchise tax report filing, the Texas Comptroller offers FAQs on reporting and filing franchise tax, as well as current year instructions. You can also receive assistance by calling 1-800-252-1381.
