Tax filing season has begun. In Connecticut, Department of Revenue Services Commissioner Kevin Sullivan says the proess has started a bit earlier than the start of federal tax season.
He says there aren’t many changes taxpayers will notice from this year to last year. Sullivan is encouraging taxpayers to take advantage of the earned income tax credit again.
Sullivan says it’s the second year for lower-income working families to get up to 30-percent credit on their income taxes.
He says information on the E-I-T-C can be found on the DRS web site. Sullivan also says its the second year they’ll issue debit cards for refunds under five-thousand-dollars; the main reason being to encourage filers to use direct deposit, thus cutting back on the issuance of paper refund checks.
