DRS Extends Filing, Payment Deadlines for Certain State Tax Returns

(Hartford, CT) – To provide relief to Connecticut taxpayers during the COVID-19 outbreak, the Connecticut Department of Revenue Services (DRS) is extending the filing and payment deadlines of certain returns until July 15, 2020. These extensions align Connecticut tax filing and payment dates with filing and payment extensions recently announced by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

“In general, Connecticut tax filings are based on submission of the corresponding federal return,” said Acting Revenue Services Commissioner John Biello. “The filing and payment extensions announced by DRS today keep Connecticut in line with recent federal updates and, in these difficult circumstances, offer taxpayers and tax professionals clarity and more time to prepare their returns.”

The impacted Connecticut returns and the associated filing dates and payment deadlines are set forth below:
