Licensing Fees Waived
for Connecticut Residents on Active Military Duty

Section 27-102a(a) of the Connecticut General Statutes provides that: 

Notwithstanding any provisions of the general statutes with respect to annual or biennial license or registration fees or occupational taxes, any resident of Connecticut on active duty with the armed forces of the United States, shall be exempt from the payment of such fees or taxes during his period of active service and for one year following the date of his honorable discharge or the date of his release under honorable conditions, from such service. 

Agents, investment adviser agents and other individual registrants wishing to take advantage of the exemption in Section 27-102a(a) should notify the Division in writing either through their employing firm or, if feasible, personally. The Division will make every effort to refund any licensing fees paid during the time the individual is on active duty.
