City of Coppell Joins DeSoto, Humble In Suing State Comptroller Over Sales Tax Change

The City of Coppell, in conjunction with the Cities of DeSoto and Humble, has filed suit against Glenn Hegar in his official capacity as the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts arguing that the Comptroller has arbitrarily and capriciously tried to change a long-standing Texas practice based on state law that governs how cities receive local sales tax revenues from Internet sales to the detriment of cities such as Coppell and others.

The lawsuit was filed last week in state court in Travis County.

“If the Comptroller’s action in rewriting what is known as rule 3.334 as it relates to receipt of local sales tax on Internet sales is allowed to go into effect on October 1, 2021, the change could cost Coppell as much as approximately $26 million or about 18% of its annual revenue,” said Coppell Mayor Wes Mays. “In talking with local Coppell businesses, we have found that the rule also creates a significant burden and confusion for companies to comply with the new rule.”
