The Comptroller’s office provides TINS reports and registers to state agencies and institutions of higher education that process transactions in TINS via online and/or through batch. The reports provide information about:
- Direct deposit transactions that process successfully
- Errors and warning messages for payee, direct deposit and hold batch transactions that fail to process
- Payee number changes and merge transactions processed by Comptroller staff
Each agency is responsible for:
- Reviewing the reports upon receipt
- Correcting the errors listed on their reports and
- Submitting the appropriate corrective transactions.
Agencies that maintain an internal payee database should review warning messages for transaction adjustments made by TINS to determine the appropriate updates agencies may need to make to their internal systems for the Texas Identification Number (TIN) and mail code.
Note: It is the agency’s responsibility to monitor their TINS reports. Prompt attention to these reports and registers minimizes the risk of delaying payments and/or generating erroneous payments.
Agencies should also review warning messages for transaction changes, such as TINS address validation changes, to determine if updates need to be made to their internal systems.
