The city of Round Rock and the Texas Comptroller's Office of Public Accounts have reached an agreement that prohibits the state from implementing part of a new sales tax rule that would affect the city's sales tax revenue until the suit goes to trial.

A temporary injunction was granted by the 250th Civil District Court of Travis County Aug. 31, following a public hearing held Aug. 30, according to an announcement from the city. This agreement stalls the implementation of this aspect of the rule until after the lawsuit goes to trial, which is expected in summer 2022.

The lawsuit, filed in July, sought to overturn some portions of rule changes implemented by the comptroller that affect the sourcing of sales tax revenue payment. In the lawsuit, it is stated that such a change could cost the city tens of millions of dollars.
