Texas Supreme Court requires e-filing of certain documents; takes effect today
KFDM News - Electronic filing is now favored by most taxpayers, and the court system is moving in that direction.
Tonight, a Texas Supreme Court order requiring electronic filing of certain documents is taking effect in courts across Texas, including several in Jefferson County.
The 172nd District Court in Jefferson County as well as three others are under the new rules that took effect Thursday, May 1.
The state wants to make the system more efficient and cut paperwork.
Jefferson County Judge Donald Floyd says it's a good idea.
In June and July, the order to file documents electronically will affect other courts in the county. Many already use e-filing.
