The Department of Revenue Services (DRS) has made the following changes since the publication of IP 2007(19), Forms 1098, 1099-R, 1099-MISC, and W-2G Electronic Filing Requirements for Tax Year 2007, and IP 2007(20), Form W-2 Electronic Filing Requirements for Tax Year 2007 was originally released.

  • A new due date of February 15, 2008, has been set for the filing of Form CT-8508, Request for Waiver from Filing Informational Returns Electronically. Non electronic copies of informational withholding returns can be submitted after Form CT-8508 has been mailed to DRS. Filers will only be notified if their request has been denied.
  • A penalty for failure to file an electronic return will only apply to employers or payers who have not submitted Form CT-8508 and who file 250 or more informational returns. Without a waiver request, filers that submit 250 or more returns on paper will be treated as having failed to file. A penalty of $5 is imposed for each informational return an employer or payer fails to file with DRS by the last day of March if filing electronically, or by the last day of February if submitting CD files or filing paper returns. The maximum penalty imposed is $2,000 per calendar year.
