Texas Comptroller Closes Audit Offices and Suspends 60-Day Deadline to Contest Audit Results as a Result of COVID-19

As a result of COVID-19, the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts is automatically extending the due date to file and pay the 2020 Texas franchise tax reports to July 15, 2020, to be consistent with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

The due date extension applies to all franchise taxpayers. The extension is automatic, and franchise taxpayers do not need to file any additional forms. The extension applies to both electronic funds transfer (EFT) and non-EFT franchise taxpayers.

For questions about the Texas Comptroller’s actions as a result of COVID-19 and the effects of the extension on EFT and non-EFT franchise taxpayers, please contact the following:
