On Monday, June 29, the state Senate approved a revised state budget, rolling back approximately $178 million in business tax hikes included in the original budget adopted by the General Assembly on June 3.

The revised budget keeps taxes on data processing and web services at 1% (the original budget hiked them to 3%) and delays implementation of the unitary reporting requirement within the corporation tax until next year.

The 19-17 vote came after an on-again, off-again seven-hour debate, with Democrats Joan Hartley (Waterbury) and Paul Doyle (Wethersfield) joining all Republicans in opposing passage--replicating the chamber's vote on the original budget.

Even in its revised state, the two-year budget still increases taxes by about $1.3 billion, including higher levies on employers, and reductions in the value of tax credits and operating loss provisions.

“Make no mistake about it, taken as a whole, this budget does not help Connecticut’s overall competitiveness," said CBIA president and CEO Joe Brennan.

“Policymakers now must aggressively follow up on the special session with structural reforms that more efficiently deliver services, reduce long-term costs, and stabilize our economy to benefit everyone who lives in Connecticut.”
