Annual Eminent Domain Reporting Begins November 1, 2016
Senate Bill 1812 by the 2015 Texas Legislature requires all entities with eminent domain authority to report specific information to the Texas Comptroller on a yearly basis. The first report was due by Feb. 1, 2016. All entities with this authority, including water and wastewater supply corporations, water districts and cities, are required to file this yearly report or face penalties of up to $2,000 for noncompliance.
If an entity fails to report by the February 1, 2017 deadline, the Comptroller will notify the entity it has 30 days to report or be subject to a civil penalty of $1,000. If the entity does not report within another 30 days after the initial notice, the Comptroller will issue another notification with an additional $1,000 penalty.
