Reminder – Warrant Pickup Availability on Nov. 27

The Comptroller’s office will be closed for business on Nov. 27; however, Payment Services will distribute warrants from 8-10 a.m. for the Nov. 26 processing cycle. There will be no warrant distribution on Nov. 28 or 29.

See Payment Distribution for warrant pickup requirements.

Reminder – Direct Deposit Reversal Request Deadline Changed in November

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the deadline for submission of the Direct Deposit Reversal Request form (74-191) for payroll reversals has been changed to 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Reminder – Check Direct Deposit Settlement Dates

State and federal holidays with no scheduled USAS cycle that are listed on the System Outages and Holidays calendar are excluded when determining the direct deposit settlement date of a payment.

Since financial institutions are closed, no direct deposit activity occurs on those days. Agencies must exclude these dates when determining when to process their payments to ensure prompt payment and avoid late payment interest.

Reminder – USAS/TINS File Submission

If you need to submit a USAS or TINS batch file on a weekend or holiday, see the USAS/TINS Input Record File Submission Schedule.

Federal Overtime Changes Effective Jan. 1

The U.S. Department of Labor has revised the rules governing which executive, administrative and professional employees (white-collar workers) are exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) minimum wage and overtime pay protections.

State agencies and institutions of higher education should review the changes. See Federal Overtime Changes Effective Jan. 1, 2020, for more information.

Note: The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts does not provide guidance on FLSA, overtime exemptions or related issues.

USPS Unavailable Dec. 14 for CYE File Split

USPS will be unavailable all day Saturday, Dec. 14, while we conduct the calendar year-end (CYE) file split.

All USPS payrolls finalized after the 2019/2020 file split must have a warrant date in calendar year 2020 and will be reflected in the 2020 files.

See the schedule in USPS Calendar Year-End Close Process (FPP R.014) and Splitting Files in the USPS Calendar Year-End Close Manual for more information.
