Section 4: Payee Identification Numbers (PIN)Anchor: #i999766
The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts (a/k/a State Comptroller’s Office) prepares State warrants based on data entered in the Texas Identification Number System (TINS), which requires Payee Identification Numbers (PINs). The name and address shown on ROW-A-15, Payment Request, must be the same as produced by the PIN. Accuracy in establishing the PIN with the correct mail code is important. The Comptroller’s Office receives many vouchers every day, and each voucher may include many State warrants. An incorrect PIN or an incorrect mail code can delay all payments on a voucher. R/W-PD should consult with Accounts Payable Support Services in the Finance Management Division for details on setting up new accounts or additional mail codes. A printout of the CPA must accompany all payment submissions.
