Did your agency make the grade?
Right now, direct deposit is an important priority for the state of Texas. Why? Because it saves the state a lot of money. How is your agency doing with direct deposit participation? Find out by checking your Agency Direct Deposit Percentage. It lets you know the percentage of payments you submit via direct deposit.
Ensure Cities and Counties Are Paid by Direct Deposit
Texas Government Code 403.016 (c) (2) states that governmental entities are required to receive recurring state payments by direct deposit. State agencies should pay other governmental entities by direct deposit unless there are special circumstances that require a warrant.
The Comptroller’s office is helping Texas cities and counties set up direct deposit instructions on all their mail codes. This ongoing project includes cleaning up existing mail codes.
If you must set up a new mail code for a city or county, please be sure to include direct deposit instructions. Do not establish unnecessary mail codes. If you have questions, contact Payment Services at (512) 936-8138 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
