Connecticut Alters Annual Sales Tax Filing Requirements
- Oct 22, 2014 | Gail Cole
Towards the end of 2013, the Connecticut Department of Revenue Services (DRS) announced that new filing requirements would take effect on January 1, 2014. From that point on, electronic filing became mandatory for numerous filers, including all Connecticut sales and use tax filers.
Now DRS has revised that requirement so that annual filers of sales and use tax are not required to file electronically:
“Recognizing the potential inconvenience for taxpayers at this time and limited benefit to the state, DRS has determined that … annual sales tax files will NOT be required to file or make payments electronically.”
Nonetheless, DRS urges all taxpayers to “take advantage of the speed and certainty of filing and paying taxes through the DRS on-line Taxpayer Service Center (TSC) or by phone through Telefile.”
