Tex. Local Gov't Code Section 112.035
Occupation Tax Records


The tax assessor-collector shall collect all occupation taxes owed to the county without assessment. That officer shall give the person who pays the tax a written receipt that states the person’s name, the occupation for which the tax is imposed, the period for which the tax payment is made, and the amounts collected for the state and for the county.


On payment of the tax, the tax assessor-collector shall:


issue the person a license in the name of the state, the county, or both, according to the tax that the person paid, that authorizes the person to engage in the occupation during the period for which the tax is paid; and


pay into the treasury the amount of the tax collected for the county.


The tax assessor-collector shall keep an occupation tax account.


At the end of each month, the tax assessor-collector shall make two reports. The tax assessor-collector shall mail the first report, relating to licenses issued on taxes paid to the state, to the comptroller of public accounts. If authorized by the comptroller, the report may be submitted electronically instead of by mail. The tax assessor-collector shall file the second report, relating to licenses issued on taxes paid to the county, with a county officer designated by the commissioners court. Each report must contain the information stated in the receipt for the tax and shall be dated and signed under the tax assessor-collector’s official seal.
