This is a follow up to a communication on August 27, 2021, regarding the deployment of the Texas by Texas (TxT) application for online registration renewal.
The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV), in partnership with Texas.gov, has enhanced online renewal with a statewide application called TxT. TxT is a “personalized digital assistant” allowing customers to conduct transactions easier, faster, and more securely. Customers may create a personal account, link their vehicle(s) for quick checkout, and establish a user profile that includes stored payment information and other preferences.
While TxT is not being promoted until later this year in conjunction with the launch of the dedicated TxT mobile application, the web-based application is active and customers may renew their vehicle registration through it or the Internet Vehicle Title and Registration Service (IVTRS). As a result, your office may need to compare reports from TxT and IVTRS to reconcile online revenue transactions processed through these different applications. Below are the reports that may need to be reviewed for funds reconciliation.
Your county may access IVTRS reports through one of two methods:
- Run the reports on demand using the TPE Admin tool
- Receive the reports via daily email from NIC (five reports)
Reports with TxT transactions will be emailed to your office like the current process for IVTRS reports. These reports may also be downloaded through the TPE Admin tool.
Logging in to TPE Admin tool to download the reports
- Access the system at https://tpe2admin-tx.cdc.nicusa.com/Texas/Login.aspx
- Confirm your login credentials are updated. If you’re unable to login, enter a ticket on ServiceNow to reset or unlock your TPE account at: https://dirsharedservices.service-now.com/sp?id=sc_cat_item&sys_id=d857ee0edbe95b009d8e5eea4b96196a
- The TPE Admin User Guide (attached) may be referenced to learn more about how to access reports
In addition to the TPE Admin User Guide, attached are a TPE Report Supplement and a TPE TxT Reconciliation Supplement. These guides were prepared by the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR), and DIR representatives will attend the V.G. Young Conference in Round Rock at the Kalahari Resorts November 9-10, 2021, to answer questions related to this communication.
