Starting with tax year 2014 all Connecticut taxpayers are required to file all Form(s) W-2, W-2G, 1099-R, or 1099-MISC electronically regardless of how many forms are filed. These forms can be transmitted electronically using the DRS’s Taxpayer Service Center (TSC). You are no longer required to file 1099-S or 1098 forms.
The electronic reporting requirement can be waived if an employer can prove hardship. To do so an employer needs to fill out for CT-8508 before January 15th, 2015. If a waver is granted the forms must be submitted on a CD rather than paper and include the appropriate form for CD filing.
The due date for electronic filing is the last day of March. If not filing electronically the due day is the last day of February.
The good news is that our 1099-etc E-File Direct module currently supports the new filing requirements in Connecticut. E-File Direct allows you to file an unlimited number of W-2 or 1099 type forms directly with the appropriate State or Federal agency.
We provide a free DEMO so that you can make sure that our software is a fit for your needs. Support is provided free of charge on Monday – Friday from 8 AM – 6 PM central time via email, fax, phone, and chat. We also offer extended hours in January and April, including Saturdays.
