Frequently Asked Questions: HB 3613
I have received the notices, when will I receive the list of liens for my county?
You will not be sent a list. You will need run the report yourself.
When is the deadline to send in the list of liens we have that are affected by HB3613?
The deadline is 60 days from the date of the second letter.
Which tax liens can be preserved?
We have determined it appropriate to preserve liens which are older than four years (2008 and older) and have been deferred, are on a payment plan, and those under bankruptcy, in addition to the liens which have a tax suit filed.
What format does the information reported to you need to be in?
We suggest you use the same format as used in the report that you run from our website.
If we make our own list what information do you need?
You must include the home ID (label and /or serial); roll account number, tax years affected by HB3613, name of the homeowner, and reason (suit, payment plan, deferments and bankruptcy).
What number do I used to run the report?
You should use your county eight digit tax id number issued by the Comptroller's office. Keep in mind if you collect for several different entities you will need run a report for each that you collect for. The ID numbers can be found here Appraisal Districts or County Tax Offices.
If I have a Central Tax Collector account number can I use that to run the report?
Yes. This report will incorporate all liens filed by using your CTC number and those entities you collect for.
If I don't have a CTC account, can I still get one?
Where should I email my report to?
Reports should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do I need to release the liens that cannot be kept on the TDHCA system?
No, you do not need to release any liens. All liens will be released sometime around mid-December that do not meet the requirements of HB3613.
