Connecticut Department of Revenue Services will soon close their CT Fresh Start tax amnesty program for unpaid Connecticut income tax, business entity tax, sales and use tax, withholding tax, corporation business tax, and gift tax.
If you have unreported, underreported, or unpaid individual or business taxes due to the State of Connecticut, you can apply for amnesty yourself or with the help of a tax preparer.
Unreported means that you did not file Connecticut income tax forms for the current or prior years, for example. If you have not been contacted by the Connecticut Department of Revenue, this is your chance to self-report and avoid all penalties and half of your interest due.
Connecticut tax amnesty applies to the following tax types:
- Business Entity Tax
- Corporation Business Tax
- Employer Withholding Tax
- Gift Tax
- Income Tax
- Sales Tax
- Use Tax
- Other taxes administered by DRS
Examples of taxes and fees not administered by DRS and therefore do not qualified for the tax amnesty program include: local property taxes, payroll taxes owed to the CT DOL, federal income tax, and any fees imposed by the Secretary of the State.
Visit the official Connecticut tax amnesty website to apply online. Applications for the Connecticut tax amnesty program will close on November 30, 2018. This is a great opportunity to self-report any unpaid Connecticut income tax.
