Connecticut Considers Hardship Claims for Victims of Sandy


The governor of Connecticut has asked the Connecticut Department of Revenue Services to consider hardship waivers for taxpayers affected by Hurricane Sandy. While the original November 7 state deadline for filing and payment extensions remains in place, the DRS recognizes that there are still individuals and tax preparers suffering from "real hardships."

As a result, Commissioner of Revenue Services Kevin Sullivan has announced that the DRS "will certainly consider any demonstrated hardships related to Storm Sandy that are brought to our attention."

Taxpayers in need of a hardship waiver should file a Request for Relief -- Storm Sandy.
