Note: Unless specifically noted otherwise, “agency” includes institutions of higher education.

The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts created this website to provide state agencies and institutions of higher education a comprehensive resource for state payee processing information, including the warrant hold program.

The website includes instructions on how to enter payee data and make inquiries in the Texas Identification Number System (TINS). TINS is the Comptroller statewide system for tracking payee and payment information. You can also quickly and easily search for payment-related information.

Please contact the Payment Services section of the Fiscal Management Division to discuss your specific situation or for clarification about any topic found in this resource.
