      5. Payment Plan

  • Direct (Electronic) Payment if you file your return electronically or have received a bill from DRS:  If you file online using the Taxpayer Service Center (TSC-IND) (our Internet based income tax filing systems), you can authorize DRS to transfer funds from your bank account (checking or savings) to a DRS account by entering your bank account number and your bank routing transit number. You can file your return early and schedule the transfer of the payment on or before the due date to ensure timely payment. Your bank account will be debited on the date you indicate.  If you owe a balance, you must pay the amount by the due date, to avoid penalty and interest.  You may also make estimated income tax payments or pay income tax bills electronically using the TSC-IND.

  • Direct (Electronic) Payment if you file a paper return:  If you file your return on paper and you want to pay electronically, you can choose Make a Bill Payment on the  left toolbar of the TSC-IND Menu.  You can authorize DRS to transfer funds from your bank account (checking or savings) to a DRS account by entering your bank account number and your bank routing transit number and designate the amount of payment and date of transfer.


  • To pay by mail:  Make your check or money order payable to the "Commissioner of Revenue Services." Mail the check with your return to DRS at:

Department of Revenue Services
PO Box 2977
Hartford, CT  06104-2977

For payments with or without a voucher, mail to DRS at:

Department of Revenue Services
Revenue Accounting
PO Box 5088
Hartford, CT  06102-5088

To ensure proper posting of your payment, you must write on the front of your check or money order:
      • The last 4 digits of your Social Security Number(s) and
      • "2014 Connecticut Income Tax"

Be sure to sign your check and paper clip it to the front of your return. Do not send cash.

Remember:  To avoid penalty and interest, your balance must be paid on or before the due date of the return.  To be timely, the check must be received or must bear a U.S. postmark on or before that date.  For other timely mailing options see the Connecticut income tax instructions for mailing the return.  Any balance still outstanding as of the due date, is generally subject to 10% penalty.  Interest will also be assessed at the rate of 1% per month or fraction of a month until payment is made.
