E-Filing Mandate Suspended for Small Biz Taxpayers
Back to the Future
The state Department of Revenue Services (DRS) is suspending the electronic filing mandate for filing Form CT-W3 for those employers who issue 24 or fewer W-2s. A paper CT-W3 can be filed by employers with 24 or fewer employees for tax year 2014. The due date for the paper CT-W3 is February 28.
Also included in the suspended mandate are taxpayers who issue 24 or fewer Forms 1099-R, 1099-MISC, or W-2G. A paper CT-1096 can be filed if the business issued 24 or fewer 1099’s for tax year 2014. The due date for the “paper” CT-1096 is February 28.
Taxpayers are encouraged to use the Taxpayer Service Center (TSC) to electronically file the annual reconciliation of withholding forms. These forms are due March 31, 2015, when filed through the TSC. Taxpayers can key in or upload their annual withholding returns quickly and easily using the TSC. The program gives taxpayers step-by-step instructions for filing.
For assistance with electronic filing, call DRS at 800-382-9463 (outside the Greater Hartford calling area) or 860-297-5962 (from anywhere).
