Prompted by COVID-19, the Connecticut Department of Revenue Services (DRS) is granting an automatic extension of Connecticut filing deadlines for some Connecticut tax returns due on or after March 15, 2020, and before June 1, 2020.

The returns subject to automatic extension and the new extended filing dates and payment deadlines are as follows:

  • 2019 Form CT-1065/CT-1120 SI Connecticut Pass-Though Entity Tax Return:
    • filing date extended to April 15, 2020;
    • payment deadline extended to June 15, 2020;
  • 2019 Form CT-990T Connecticut Unrelated Business Income Tax Return:
    • filing date extended to June 15, 2020;
    • payment deadline extended to June 15, 2020; and
  •  2019 Form CT-1120 and CT-1120CU Connecticut Corporation Business Return:
    • filing date extended to June 15, 2020;
    • payment deadline extended to June 15, 2020.

In addition, on March 11, President Trump stated that he had asked the Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) to extend the filing season, but the agencies involved have not yet announced such a change. The president did not state the date to which taxpayers will be allowed to delay their tax filings. Nor did the president specify which types of taxpayers would be eligible for this tax deadline relief.

This blog will be updated when more information is available.
