DEEP: Fees and Credits for Fishing and Hunting Licenses, Permits and Tags

Fees and Credits for Fishing and Hunting
Licenses, Permits and Tags
 
During the 2010 session of the General Assembly, legislation was approved and signed into law in April reducing many of the fees for sportsmenís licenses and permits. This was followed in June by legislation authorizing a credit to be applied against the fee for any 2011 sportsmenís license, permit or tag when purchase of a license, permit or tag had been made at the higher prices in place between October 1, 2009 and April 14, 2010.  The credit amount will be the difference between the higher amount paid during that time period and the amount set by the new fee structure established April 14, 2010.
 
(You can find out if you are eligible for a credit and how much it will be at www.ct.gov/deep/sportsmenscredit.)
