DRS: WTH Employer Info

Withholding Information

Due date change:  Employers must now submit to DRS Form CT-W-3, and federal Forms W-2 by January 31.

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 for tax year 2015.  The due date for Form CT-W3 is January 31.  Also included in the suspended mandate is filing Form CT-1096 for 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 for tax year 2015.  The due date for the “paper” Form CT-1096 is February 28. 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.

For assistance with electronic filing, call DRS at 800-382-9463 (outside the Greater Hartford calling area) or 860-297-5962 (from anywhere).
