Stay compliant and file your annual public information report with the Texas Comptroller's Office.

Public Information Report (PIR)

What is the Public Information Report?

Each taxable entity formed as a corporation, limited liability company (LLC), limited partnership, professional association and financial institution that is organized in Texas must file a public information report annually to satisfy their filing requirements. This report collects management information for an  entity.


When is the Public Information Report Due?

The PIR is due May 15th, every year following your entity's year of formation. It must be signed by an officer, director or other authorized person. Ex. If you formed in 2023, your first report will be due May 15th, 2024.

What governing agency is this report filed with?

The Texas Comptroller's Office.

Frequently Asked Questions about the PIR

What happens if I don't file an annual Public Information Report?

You will immediately begin accumulating late fees, the day after the report is due. If you fail to file a completed and signed PIR report, the effects of forfeiture include the denial of your entity’s right to sue or defend in a Texas court, and each officer, director, partner, member or owner becomes personally liable for certain debts of the entity. 

What entities are not required to file a PIR Report?

  • Entities that are not organized in Texas and/or do not have nexus in Texas.

  • Entities that are exempt from Texas franchise tax.

  • Qualifying new veteran-owned businesses during their initial five-year period.

  • Entities that qualify as passive.

Contact the Texas Comptroller's Office to see if you are exempt.​

Is the annual Public Information Report (PIR) the same thing as the Beneficial Owner Information  (BOI) Report?

No, it is not. The Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) report is a mandatory NATIONAL filing that  is submitted to (FinCEN). The BOI filing became effective January 1, 2024 and requires most corporations and LLCs in the U.S. to report ownership information to (FinCEN).

The Public Information Report is a requirement at the STATE level and is filed with the Texas Comptroller's Office.
