Sheriffs' & Constables' 2005 Fees

Transmittal Letter

Dear Fellow Texans:

The 74th Texas Legislature in 1995 passed Senate Bill 770, which amended §118.131(f) of the Local Government Code to require each county commissioners court to provide written notice to the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts of any changes in the fees set for services performed by the offices of sheriffs and constables. These fees do not apply to criminal cases.

Pursuant to §118.131, Local Government Code, the Comptroller’s office has compiled the following list of fees effective January 1, 2005. The fees published are those reported by county officials to the Comptroller.

I am grateful for the cooperation of county officials throughout the state. I commend them for their commitment to public service.

I am also pleased to announce that the report is available on my Web site.


Carole Keeton Strayhorn,
Texas Comptroller
