The Texas Comptroller is warning of a scam involving individuals falsely claiming to represent the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, or in some cases the Texas Department of Transportation. The caller claims the taxpayer has a tax liability or other issue and requests credit card information. The Comptroller's office does not request payment details, such as credit card numbers or electronic check information, over the telephone. If you receive one of these calls, please do not provide your personal confidential credit card or bank information.
City of San Antonio Development Services Department is requesting TACCA members to be nominated as the primary and an alternate member for the HVAC Contractor positions to the Building Related and Fire Codes Appeals and Advisory Board (BRFCAAB). Qualified nominees shall be licensed by the State of Texas as an air conditioning and refrigeration contractor that represent an open shop. The board typically only meets when there is an appeal to be heard but will also be very active in the review, adoption and amendment process of the 2018 Codes. Please contact TACCA- GSA for more information.
The Technician Certification bill has been filed as HB 3029.
The amended technician certificate will indicate that those students who complete the HVAC training program in high school, an apprenticeship, community college, technical institute, or military training, have identifiable, marketable skills and remains strictly voluntary.
The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation proposes amendments to the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration program rules (16 Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 75 §§75.10, 75.25, 75.30, 75.70 and 75.110).
The TACCA Board of Directors and I would like would like to thank our Members for your continuous support.
