SB670 by Birdwell (Relating to the Texas Identification Number system.), As Introduced
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend Chapter 403, Government Code, to remove the exemption of state employees from assignment of a Texas Identification Number (TIN) and to no longer require the Comptroller to base the TIN on the Comptroller's taxpayer identification number system. The bill would take effect immediately if it receives a two-thirds vote of all members elected to each house; otherwise the bill would take effect on September 1, 2015. The Comptroller of Public Accounts indicates that any cost associated with implementation of the bill could be absorbed within existing resources.
Local Government Impact
No fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
