Releasing Held Warrants
Warrant Hold Release Reason Codes

Warrant hold release reason codes are listed on the Payee Held Warrants Released (PYWTHR) screen. The disposition of the held warrant could be:

  • Canceled
  • Released to the paying agency for distribution to the payee


  • Offset against the state debt

When a hold source agency or the paying agency authorizes the Comptroller’s office to release a held warrant, the release reason code is required on the Warrant Release or Reinstatement Request (00-432) form (login required) PDF.
