Closed Your Business or No Longer Have Employees

Tax Account Suspended by TWC

TWC may suspend your account because you have not reported wages for an extended period of time. Every calendar quarter, the Tax department reviews all accounts and suspends those that have not reported wages for the previous eight calendar quarters.

Notify TWC if you need to reopen your account by submitting the following form, once wages have been paid:
