More about the myconneCT launch:

Only the above tax types are impacted at this time.  If you do not file or pay any of the tax types listed above, you are not impacted at this time, and should continue using your current method of filing.

If you file both Phase 1 tax types and non‑Phase 1 tax types (e.g. Corporate Income Tax), you will be required to use myconneCT for Phase 1 tax types and should continue to use your current method of filing for non-Phase 1 tax types.

  • Balances displayed in myconneCT only represent the balances for Phase 1 tax types (listed above).
  • Separate bills for Phase 1 and non-Phase 1 tax types will be issued. Together, these will provide the taxpayer with a “full picture” of their financial status with the agency.

Estimated assessments will occur on all delinquent returns that are available in myconneCT.

  • Estimated assessments will be processed based on the best available information including, but not limited to: previous filing history, tax type, filing frequency, and your industry classification.
  • If you receive an estimated assessment, do not send in payment for the estimated tax due. File your return and pay the actual tax due amount, if any, by the protest expiration date.

What improvements can you expect from myconneCT:

  • Only one logon ID needed per taxpayer
  • New Action Center
  • Filing reminders sent 5 days prior to due date
  • Viewing amended returns
  • Viewing DRS correspondence (letters)
  • Updated secure mailbox (web messages)
  • Tax account management for paid preparers is easier

 

  • Mobile-device friendly
  • Now able to file online for Dry Cleaners, Tourism, Rental Surcharge

      Please note there is an Excel spreadsheet solution available to help build the file.

      To file your Disaggregated Sales Tax Report using myconneCT:
