Important Information About Dry Cleaning Surcharges

This publication has been obsoleted by SN 94(16)

INTRODUCTION: In its May Special Session, the Legislature enacted 1994 Conn. Pub. Acts 4, §41 (May Spec. Sess.) imposing a dry cleaning establishment surcharge of one percent of the gross receipts at retail of any dry cleaning services. This law was to take effect July 1, 1994. However, due to several major flaws in the law, the Department has determined that the law cannot be implemented.

Therefore, dry cleaning establishments are not required to pay, and are not liable for such surcharge.

Dry cleaning establishments SHOULD NOT BE CHARGING ANY DRY CLEANING SURCHARGE TO THEIR CUSTOMERS as the cost of dry cleaning services have not been increased by the assessment of any tax. Furthermore, the Department is unaware of any discussion or plan making the tax retroactive to July 1, 1994.
