The Texas Comptroller's office recently published a web page with information on refunds for cable television, internet access, and telecommunications services providers.

The page provides information on a law that went into effect in September 2013 that allows certain service providers to get refunds of tax paid on qualifying purchases. A "qualifying purchase" is tangible personal property that was (1) purchased, leased, or rented by one of these providers or its subsidiary and (2) directly used or consumed in providing cable television service, internet access service, or telecommunications services. Texas sales or use tax must have been paid in the calendar year immediately before the year in which the provider submits a refund request. This refund does not apply to local sales and use taxes.

This refund opportunity is available for providers of cable television, internet access, or telecommunications services. Subsidiaries of these providers may also request a refund.

The web page provides guidance on who is eligible for a refund, how to request a refund, and how refunds are calculated.
