Summary by Dirk Langeveld
Connecticut businesses that have sold meals to consumers may be eligible for a tax break established earlier this year by the Connecticut General Assembly.
The Connecticut Department of Revenue Services says certain sellers of meals may retain the sales tax they collect on the sales of meals during one, and only one, of the following weeks:
- Aug 1-7, 2021
- Dec. 12-18, 2021
- May 15-21, 2022
Businesses qualify for this benefit if they make meal sales and are included in sector 72 of NAICS. This includes businesses such as restaurants, caterers, and food trucks.
Sellers must provide information on the sales of meals during the week when filing the Connecticut sales and use tax return. More information on the benefit is available here.
