The Comptroller has posted her October Tax Policy News e-newsletter on her website.  The link to the Tax Policy News is http://www.cpa.state.tx.us/taxinfo/taxpnw/tpn2008/tpn810.html.  In the newsletter, among other things, the Comptroller notes that the administrative rule concerning the temporary margin tax credit (Rule 3.595) will be amended to require the credit to be applied for a report year only when the amount of franchise tax due for the report year exceeds $1,000.  The newsletter also notifies taxpayers that the Comptroller willbe mailing notices to any taxpayer that filed a 2008 franchise tax report but did not meet all of the filing requirements.  According to the newsletter, the most common error was filing an incorrect Information Report with the franchise tax report.
