Taxpayers encouraged to file electronically


HARTFORD — A Connecticut official is encouraging taxpayers scrambling to meet the income tax filing deadline to file electronically.

Department of Revenue Services Commissioner Kevin Sullivan says the free Taxpayer Service Center provides secure, electronic filing that takes the guesswork out of calculating state income tax. He says taxpayers also receive a confirmation that their return was received by DRS.

More than 1.1 million state income tax returns had been filed by April 7, with another 500,000 or more expected to be submitted by Tuesday. Officials say the majority of returns — just over 1 million — were filed electronically.

Sullivan says the state has already issued 600,000 refunds worth more than $403 million. He says those who filed electronically and chose direct deposit get refunds faster.
