Texas Uses the Web to Simplify Business Sales Tax Filing
October 25, 1998--The State of Texas--the same Texas that launched a successful performance review under the leadership of Comptroller John Sharp in the early 90s that saved taxpayers billions of dollars--keeps working to make government cost less and work better. The State has now simplified business sales tax filing. Analyst Stuart Greenfield says "Our agency has recently deployed an application that allows 'no-tax' due sales tax payers the capability to file these type of returns over the Web." It's called WebFile and you will find it on the agency's Window on State Government site.

"This application builds off the Telefile system the agency has used since 1996," Greenfield said."Both applications share the same database and a procedure is in place to extract the return data and port it to the agency mainframe to update taxpayer records."
