Why can’t I find information for income tax relief in Connecticut on the Internet?

If you are looking for some Connecticut Tax Relief  then you are in the right place. However, perhaps you are having trouble finding help with the specific kind of tax relief you are looking for. The reason for that is fairly simple, actually.

See, Connecticut provides a “Tax Relief Program” for property taxes for the elderly and disabled. This property tax credit varies depending on whether or not the homeowner is elderly or single. If you are looking for information on that program, or other CT tax programs for the elderly, I suggest you take a look at the Connecticut Judicial Branch Law Library’s page on the subject here. If not, keep reading.

Different municipalities, such as East Haddam and Greenwich also have pages on the web devoted to that subject. (Tolland, Mansfield, New Britain, Norwalk, and Cheshire also have their own pages on the subject.)

What if I need Connecticut Tax Relief for Income Taxes or Sales Taxes in CT?

If you are looking for income tax help in Connecticut, then you should consider whether or not you have been successful with dealing with the Department of Revenue Services on your own. If not, consider hiring a tax lawyer such as myself to advocate on your behalf.

The truth is, that several sales tax problems can get very contentious with the State of Connecticut, so it is best to have an attorney involved as soon as you or your business gets audited. I have seen clients charged with crimes as the result of an audit, or as the result of failing to file their Connecticut sales tax returns.

Even if a tax debt has already been assessed as the result of an audit by the state or as the result of a return that was filed without full payment, tax relief might be available with the state of Connecticut. Whether the resolution of your tax problems with the state is achieved by the implementation of an Installment Agreement or an Offer of Compromise it is possible to keep the DRS at bay, and either settle your taxes for less than what is owed or initiate an installment agreement for a monthly amount that you can actually afford to pay.

What if I do nothing to address my tax problems?

If you do nothing to address your tax problems, the CT DRS will eventually issue Tax Warrants to your employer, your banks, and people you do business with, directing those people and institutions to send money to the state instead of to you. This can be embarrassing and a financial burden. Luckily, you do have the option to head off these problems before they occur by being proactive with the DRS and working to establish an arrangement that satisfies both you and the state.

If you are worried about speaking to the state about the possibility of CT Tax Relief on your own, I understand, and I urge you to contact me for a free consultation.

Honest Answers

Not a Sales Pitch

It has been a while since the demise of large national tax resolution firms like Tax Masters, JK Harris, and Roni Deutch, and the landscape of the Tax Resolution field has changed substantially. But in some ways it has remained very much the same.


Firms like Tax Masters went to financial markets and raised capital for advertising, and invested heavily in television commercials and sales staff to "close deals" without making sure that they were adequately staffed to take on the work that was required.

Now, most Tax Resolution firms are often smaller, more regional, and easier to manage.

Big television ad-buys and marketing initiatives are still a common feature of the "Tax Resolution Industry," however, but the sales-force is merely outsourced.

Most heavily advertised Tax Resolution brands are nothing more than referral service! And those referrals are dolled out based on how much a given "Firm" has paid the advertiser.

When you book a meeting or phone call through our site, you will speak directly with an actual tax attorney the first time you speak with anyone. We don't employ sales-people or sales firms.
