Tax Licensees Will Have to Pay Up Back Taxes

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut’s Department of Revenue Services is sending letters to certain delinquent taxpayers, warning them to pay their outstanding liabilities or else risk not having their sales tax and other tax licenses renewed.

Starting Monday, a new law takes effect that prohibits the DRS commissioner from renewing sales tax, cigarette tax or tobacco products tax licenses if the taxpayer has unpaid state taxes.

Commissioner Kevin Sullivan said his agency is reaching out to these delinquent taxpayers to help them resolve any payment issues and continue to do business in Connecticut.

Once the outstanding debt is paid or the delinquent taxpayer enters into a payment agreement, DRS can send them a new tax license.
