         Biennial Net Impact to General Revenue Funds by SB1014-As Engrossed
No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

The bill's proposed changes to Section 1.111 of the Tax Code 
would state that a tax agent is not prohibited from acting as 
a property owner's agent before an agent designation form is 
filed.  The procedures concerning taxpayer representation should 
have no fiscal impact on the state and local governments.
No fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
