HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut taxpayers will have the option of making electronic payments to settle their state tax bills.
The Department of Revenue Services has launched a new, free system that allows taxpayers to set up a payment plan online and determine when the money will be withdrawn from their bank account each month.
DRS Commissioner Kevin Sullivan said the agency recognizes it has been a difficult economy and some people have trouble paying off their tax obligations in a single payment. He said the new system will allow the taxpayers to manage how they repay their tax debt while eliminating the need for DRS to manually process checks.
The electronic payments are not available for taxpayers in a collection action with DRS or have debts exceeding $5,000.
