Compliance Division - We're Problem Solvers

The Compliance Division, comprised of it's six operating sections, is responsible for the enforcement of all tax laws administered by the Comptroller and administering the Uniform Disposition of Unclaimed Property Act.  Primary functions include auditing, collections, and various discovery activities. In conjunction with these activities, the Division handles the levying of assessments, tax appeals, and legal enforcement.

Failing to comply with the state tax laws can land your name on the "Caught in the Web" listing.  The listing is updated every six months with the individuals and businesses who owe the state millions of dollars in unpaid taxes, penalties and interest. Since the program's inception in 2000, the agency has collected more than $ 26.5 million in personal income, sales and use, admissions and amusement, withholding and corporate income taxes.  

So, if you forget to file an income tax return, miss a deadline or have a tax liability, the Compliance Division can help you figure out what steps to take next.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to encourage compliance with tax laws through aggressive but equitable enforcement activities to level the playing field for all taxpayers. All taxpayers will be treated fairly and will receive courteous service.
