The Connecticut Department of Revenue Services’ (DRS) 2021 Tax Amnesty program offering individuals and businesses the opportunity to pay back taxes at a reduced interest rate and no penalties will end Jan.31.
Launched Nov. 1, the program offers a 75% reduction in interest and waives penalties and the possibility of criminal prosecution to those who have not filed, have under-reported or have existing liabilities related to taxes owed to the State for any tax period ending on or before December 31, 2020.
Taxpayers seeking amnesty can access all program information, including a link to myconneCT, the secure online payment portal, via the Tax Amnesty program website at GetRightCT.com. Tax Amnesty applications must be filed electronically, and payment made in full by January 31, 2022. Once Tax Amnesty ends taxpayers will be liable for the full tax, penalty, and interest on any amount owed.
All taxes administered by the Connecticut DRS, except for Connecticut motor carrier road tax (IFTA), are eligible for Tax Amnesty.
