OUR BUSINESS Model:  When the State of Texas selected eFileTexas.gov to serve as the its manager (EFM), the State mandated that eFileTexas.gov also to offer a “free” “no charge” EFSP to compete with the for profit EFSPs. This free EFSP is eFile.TXCourts.gov.  It enjoys a direct connection to the EFM database. However, the for profit EFSPs must enter the EFM database via a different portal, Application Programmer Interface (API).  At this point in time the API path is still being constructed and is not equal to eFile.TXCourts.gov direct path.  Consequently, our log-in path is via the “free” eFile.TXCourts.gov. When the direct and API connections are equal, we will offer our own API connection from this website.
