The Texas Comptroller is our state’s financial officer, responsible for overseeing the $100 billion-a-year enterprise of Texas state government. Our duties include managing the state’s investments, estimating the financial impact of proposed legislation and forecasting the amounts that state taxes, fees and other revenue sources will produce over each two-year state budget period.

This requires our economists, researchers and subject-matter experts to keep a constant watch on the Texas economy. In this area, we provide a series of resources that can give you a better understanding of the trends and events that affect our state — and your wallet.
