While running for comptroller, Hegar amended his personal financial statements after The Associated Press reported that he did not list his wife, her employer or the specifics on a mutual fund. At the time, Hegar said he did not have “active control” over his wife’s work or assets.
As of June 2014, more than 10 percent of the money Hegar had raised to run for comptroller came from business or firms with clients who had active tax cases, The Houston Chronicle reported. Hegar said at a Texas Tribune event that he wouldn't give favorable treatment to those who donated.
