SEPTEMBER 2004 EMPLOYER INFORMATION NOTICE

$25. FEE FOR LATE FILERS BECOMES EFFECTIVE IN THIS QUARTER! (NOVEMBER 1, 2004)
Public Act 04-60 establishes a $25. Late Fee for failure to file quarterly employer
contribution reports in a timely manner. These reports are due 30 days after the end of each
calendar quarter. The late filing fee will be assessed on any late return commencing with the
3rd quarter 2004. The fee is in addition to any interest or penalties on contributions due.

Ø ALERT! SUTA DUMPING (TAX RATE MANIPULATION)


The Connecticut Department of Labor is aware that on a national level, a number of employers, many who are
being directed by tax advisors, have engaged in the practice of shifting employees from one entity to another for the
purpose of UI tax rate manipulation. This practice is in violation of Connecticut Unemployment Compensation
Law. The Department is monitoring this activity and will audit any employers found to be engaging in the practice.
Appropriate penalties, in addition to any contributions due, will be assessed.
Recently, Congress unanimously passed HR 3463 amending federal law to prevent SUTA dumping, and impose
civil and criminal penalties to employers and tax advisors who knowingly violate provisions of the law.

Ø CONNECTICUT INTERNET TAX SERVICES - YOUR PASSWORD IS PRINTED ON THE EMPLOYEE


QUARTERLY EARNINGS REPORT FORM UC-5A OR UC-5R
Eliminate paper forms! Using our Internet Tax Services site allows a “paper” filer to report its current quarter tax
and wage information to the Connecticut Department of Labor via the Internet. It now allows all employers to notify
us of changes to a FEIN, or name or address. Additionally, an employer may notify us of the sale of all or part of a
business, or the acquisition of all or part of a business using this site.
The tax and wage reporting system provides the option to remit the tax due electronically. If you do not wish to
pay electronically, you still have the option to mail a check.
The Internet address is: https://wage.ctdol.state.ct.us/index.asp. You will need your employer registration
number and password printed on the Employee Quarterly Earnings Report, Form UC-5A, or UC-5R that we have just
mailed to you. Using the Internet system for filing saves time because the names and Social Security numbers of
your employees listed on your previous report will already be listed on the Internet system. Once you have entered
your wage information, the system computes your tax due, and then gives you the option of printing a voucher to be
mailed with a check, or paying electronically.
NOTE: If you are not using Internet Explorer 5.5 or Netscape 6.0 and above, you may experience problems. The
site affords you the option to download these browsers free of charge.

Ø NO WAGES/NO EMPLOYEES THIS QUARTER??


If you had no employees or wages paid this quarter, you are still required to file a tax return. The fastest and
easiest way to do this is by phoning in a return. (Select Option #3 when you dial either (860) 566-1018, or (203) 248-4270).
A second option is to write the word None on your UC-5A and UC-2 and mail it in. For your convenience, we
will keep your registration number active until you file None returns for eight (8) consecutive quarters; your registration
number will then be discontinued automatically. Remember, after November 1, 2004, your account will be
assessed the $25. Late Filing fee for failure to file a None return timely.

Ø ON-LINE FORMS

September 2004 Employer Information Notice p. 2

The Office of Victim Services, Connecticut Judicial Branch, would like to remind employers of the following rights of
crime victims: Under Connecticut General Statute 54-85d, an employer may not fire, harass, threaten or retaliate
against an employee for appearing under a subpoena as a witness in any criminal proceeding. In addition, an
employer can not deprive an employee of employment, penalize, threaten or coerce an employee for any of the
following reasons: the employee obeys a legal subpoena to appear before a state court as a witness in a criminal
proceeding; the employee attends a court proceeding or participates in a police investigation related to a criminal case
in which the employee is a crime victim; a restraining order has been issued on the employee’s behalf; or a protective
order has been issued on the employee’s behalf by a Connecticut court or by a court of another state. In these cases,
“crime victim” means an employee who suffers direct or threatened physical, emotional or financial harm as a result of
a crime or an employee who is an immediate family member or guardian of a person who suffers such harm, or a
homicide victim. Additionally, an employer can not fire, harass, or threaten an employee because the employee (as a
parent, spouse, child sibling or designated decision maker of a victim of homicide) attends the criminal court
proceeding of the person(s) charged with committing the crime that resulted in the victim’s death.

Please contact the Office of Victim Services if you have questions by calling the statewide toll-free number
(800) 822-8428
