Pursuant to Texas Local Government Code 262.0276, Randall County Commissioners Court has adopted a policy which requires that vendors' taxes be current as of the date bids/proposals are due. Bidders with delinquent taxes on the due date will not be eligible for award. Whether or not a vendor's taxes are delinquent will be determined by an independent review of the Tax Office records. Vendors who believe a delinquency is reflected in error must contact the Tax Office to correct any errors or discrepancies prior to submitting their bid in order to ensure that their bid will be considered. Prior to submitting a bid, vendors are encouraged to contact the Tax Office in regards to the status of their tax accounts. Furthermore, if, during the performance of this contract, a vendor's taxes become delinquent, Randall County reserves the right to provide notice to the Auditor or Treasurer pursuant to Texas Local Government Code Section 154.045. This policy is effective for all bids due on or after September 1, 2004.
