Introduction to Warrant Hold
State agencies and institutions of higher education (excluding junior and community colleges) are required to notify the Comptroller’s office if a person or other entity owes a debt to the state of Texas. For the warrant hold legal citations, see Reporting of State Debts and Hold Offset Procedures (APS 028) (FPP E.037).
Training is recommended for agency staff responsible for warrant holds. Fiscal Management offers:

Note: Doing business with payees on hold provides beneficial opportunities to recoup state debt.
