HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut’s tax chief is asking taxpayers to donate a part of their refunds to charity.

Department of Revenue Services Commissioner Kevin Sullivan says taxpayers may donate part of their refunds to help Connecticut soldiers, state social services and to support AIDS and breast cancer research, organ transplants and environmental conservation.

Connecticut taxpayers have donated more than $5.6 million for charitable programs since check-off boxes were added to the state income tax return in 1993.

The deadline for filing Connecticut income taxes is April 15.
