Connecticut Extends Tax Deadlines Due to Sandy


The worst of Superstorm Sandy is over, yet the recovery is just beginning. As of this writing, there are still millions without power up and down the East Coast. People have lost their homes, and the death toll is climbing.

Connecticut is one of several states, including New York and New Jersey, that is offering tax extensions for victims of Sandy. State taxes previously due October 31 are now due on November 7, 2012. When announcing the extensions, Commissioner Kevin Sullivan said, "For all those affected by the storm, flooding, loss of power and damage, taxes are the last thing they need to worry about."

Tax extensions due to Storm Sandy include:

  • Monthly and quarterly sales and use tax;
  • Income tax withholding;
  • Alcohol beverage tax;
  • Admissions and dues tax;
  • Electric Generators Tax; and
  • Various gross earnings taxes.

State commercial tax registrations requirements for out-of-state fuel suppliers, fuel suppliers, storm contractors, and "others coming into Connecticut on an emergency basis" are also waved.

Additional information is available at the Connecticut Department of Revenue.
