DRS: Information Return Filing Update

Information Return Filing Update


The Department of Revenue Services is suspending the electronic filing mandate for filing Form CT-W3 for those employers who issue 24 or fewer W-2s. A paper Form CT-W3 can be filed by employers with 24 or fewer W-2’s.  The due date for Form CT-W3 is January 31.  Also included in the suspended mandate is filing Form CT-1096 for those payers of nonpayroll amounts who issue 24 or fewer Forms 1099-R, 1099-MISC, or W-2G.  A paper Form CT-1096 can be filed if the business issued 24 or fewer 1099’s.  The due date for the “paper” Form CT-1096 is the last day of February.


Taxpayers are encouraged to use the Taxpayer Service Center (TSC) to electronically file the annual reconciliation of withholding forms. Taxpayers can key in or upload their annual withholding returns quickly and easily using the TSC. The program gives taxpayers step-by-step instructions for filing.
