Connecticut: EFT Due Date Changes, 2016


 Don't miss it.

The due date to file and remit sales tax and numerous other taxes in Connecticut changed at the beginning of 2015, from the last day of the month following the reporting period to the 20th of the month following the reporting period.

Now the Connecticut Department of Revenue Services (DRS) has announced that the sales and use tax return filing due date will revert to the last day of the month for taxable periods ending on or after December 31, 2015. This change impacts electronic fund transfer due dates for Connecticut ACH Debit taxpayers.

To avoid the possibility of interest or penalty charges, “ACH Debit taxpayers must initiate their transaction no later than midnight on, or before, the actual due dates … for the tax to be considered paid timely.”
