Martens, Todd & Leonard: Texas Supreme Court Orders Sales Tax Refund On Toys

The Texas Supreme Court rejected the Comptroller's attempts to extend her authority beyond the law's plain language through her rules.  The Court wrote:

Regardless of which Comptroller Rule applies, the Comptroller cannot through rulemaking impose taxes that are not due under the Tax Code . . .

This and other portions of the opinion that limit the Comptroller's authority will provide taxpayers, courts, and the Comptroller with important guidance when interpreting the tax laws.
