Step by Step Instructions

Before you begin:

You need Texas taxpayer ID numbers and WebFile number(s) for each taxpayer account.

What is my WebFile number and where do I find it?

Your WebFile number is your "access code" to WebFile issued by the Comptroller's office. It is printed in the upper left corner of the tax report we mail to each taxpayer and on most notices. It is two letters followed by six numbers (Example: RT666666).

If you do not have your WebFile number, you can contact us at (800) 442-3453 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This automated system can provide a WebFile number if you can provide confidential information from a previously filed report. You can request a duplicate report via this automated system if you cannot provide the confidential information.
