Inactivation and Purge Processes
To ensure only current payee information is maintained in TINS, the Comptroller’s office maintains a schedule and criteria for inactivating and purging outdated TINS records that include:
- Inactivation of mail codes and Texas Identification Numbers (TINs)
- Purge of direct deposit information (does not purge the mail code)
- Purge of payee maintenance history (PMTHIS)
- Purge of mail codes and TINs
