Make Payment Tax Type
Select the tax type from the drop down box.  If you do not see the tax type for which you want to make a payment, you cannot make the payment using the Taxpayer Service Center (TSC). You may not be authorized by your business's TSC administrator to make the payment or your business may not be registered for that tax type.  Contact your business's TSC administrator or DRS for assistance.
If you are making a payment for a business, enter the business's Connecticut tax registration number.
Choose the end date from the drop down box if you are making a payment for a period when you were a monthly, quarterly or annual filer.
If you have been authorized by DRS to file and pay every 4 weeks (13 times a year), enter the period end date for which you are making a payment.  For example, if making a payment for the period ending Friday, July 28, enter 07/28/2007 or click on the date in the calendar box to select July 28.

If the TSC displayed a message that this filing is late, and it is the due date, you may be able to initiate a same day FedWire funds transfer through your bank.  To do so, you will need to contact your bank directly. FedWires are typically charged additional fees by your bank, and will have an afternoon cut-off time to ensure that DRS will receive the funds by the due date.  If you qualify for this type of transfer, you can call the EFT unit at 860-297-4973 to receive the FedWire instructions.

I will make direct payment with this return  By choosing this option you are authorizing DRS to debit your checking or savings account on the date you select. There is no preregistration required to use this option.

The confirmation number you will receive with this return only acknowledges the filing of the return. You MUST initiate your Electronic payment outside of the Taxpayer Service Center system.

Direct Payment is the automatic transfer of funds from your bank account to the State's bank account. By filling out this page, you authorize the Department of Revenue Services to have your tax due automatically paid from your checking or savings account.

Select checking or savings, then enter your nine-digit bank routing number and your bank account number. Your bank routing number is the first nine-digit number printed in the lower left-hand corner of your check or savings withdrawal slip. Your bank account number generally follows the bank routing number.

Credit Card Option

Credit Card Payment

Select the end date of the filing period for which you want to file a return or make a payment from the drop down box.  DRS only displays the eligible period end date(s) based on the Filing Frequency history of the taxpayer.  Therefore the TSC only offers the periods that DRS believes you need to file or pay.
The TSC offers the ability to file the current year plus 2 previous years for existing eligible tax types.  Any new tax types added will only have the ability to file current period returns.  Up to 2 years of prior returns will be available to file only after the tax type account has been established long enough to have 2 prior years of returns.
If you do not see the period end date for which you want to file a return in the drop down box, please contact the DRS during business hours.

If a weekly remitter has two or more paydays during a weekly period, the weekly remitter is generally required to make one payment for the weekly period to DRS and should enter the date of the last payday when making the payment.  However, if the paydays fall in different quarterly periods, the weekly remitter should make the separate payments with separate Forms CT-WH for the separate Connecticut income tax withholding liabilities.
A return has been saved (but not filed) for the period you selected. To continue with the Saved return, select "yes" in the yellow box. To start over and delete the saved return, select "no".
You have chosen to save and exit this filing.  Your return has NOT been filed. The information on this return will be saved for 30 days should you wish to complete this transaction. If you want a printable copy of this, select "print."
You have prepared a return stating that no tax is due.  If this is correct, press Next.  If you need to make changes, press Back.
Before a refund check is issued, DRS reviews the account for any past due balances that may exist for other filing periods or tax types.  In these instances, the refund may be "offset" to pay any outsanding balances.  Additionally, a refund will not be sent if a "delinquent" status exists on the account indicating that certain tax returns for any tax type have not been filed as required.  A notice will be sent to the taxpayer explaining any reduction or denial of refund.
