In a move to support the state’s business community during the COVID-19 outbreak, the state’s Department of Revenue Services (DRS) has announced an automatic extension of Connecticut filing deadlines for certain annual tax returns. The extension is effective immediately. See information from DRS:

Effective immediately, the filing deadlines for certain annual tax returns due on or after March 15, 2020, and before June 1, 2020, are extended by at least 30 days. In addition, the payments associated with these returns are also extended to the corresponding due date in June.

The impacted returns and the associated filing dates and payment deadlines are set forth below:

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
