From Commissioner Kevin Sullivan at the Department of Revenue Services:
For Immediate Release: Tuesday, October 30, 2012
STATE TAX DEADLINES EXTENDED TO NOVEMBER 7th, COMMERCIAL TAX REGISTRATION WAIVED
DUE TO STORM SANDY
Following Governor Dannel Malloy’s emergency declaration and the continuing impact of Storm Sandy, Department of Revenue Services (DRS) Commissioner Kevin B. Sullivan has extended the deadline for state tax filings and payments due this week to the end of the business day on November 7, 2012. The Commissioner also waived state commercial tax registration requirements for out state fuel suppliers, storm contractors and others coming into Connecticut on an emergency basis.
Said Commissioner Sullivan, “For all those affected by the storm, flooding, loss of power and damage, taxes are the last thing they need to worry about. Similarly, no tax paperwork should impede disaster recovery.”
State tax deadlines extended from October 31, 2012 include:
- Monthly and quarterly sales and use tax,
- Income tax withholding
- Alcoholic beverage tax,
- Admissions and dues tax,
- Electric Generators Tax, and
- Various gross earnings taxes
Commissioner Sullivan noted that the state tax extension does not affect federal Internal Revenue Services tax deadlines.
A complete list of all filings and payments due October 31, 2012 are listed on the DRS website: Calendar Year Due Dates by Tax at: http://www.ct.gov/drs/cwp/view.asp?a=3750&q=447280
