2000/2001Section Tax Refunds

The Department of Revenue Services issues refunds to taxpayers when an overpayment of tax liability has been made.  The refund is charged to the fund to which such tax, penalty or interest was previously credited.  Due to statutory allowances, refunds for Motor Fuel Taxes are allowed in certain cases involving fuel sold to a Connecticut motor bus company or a company engaged in livery service. 

Refunds of the Personal Income Tax owed to any person or entity who has a debt obligation to the state may be withheld to offset the outstanding debt.  There were 1,757 offsets in Fiscal Year 2000-01, totaling $904,413.

Listed below are the refund amounts by tax type, and the total amount of taxes refunded for Fiscal Years 1999-00 and 2000-01.
