Panel will consider plan to boost CT income taxes on the wealthy

The legislature’s tax-writing panel Wednesday will consider recommending an increase in income taxes on Connecticut’s wealthiest households, retroactive to Jan. 1, to help close the large deficit in the next budget, according to sources. The Democrat-controlled Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee also will consider significantly extending the sales tax to new goods and services as part of a plan to overhaul non-education municipal aid and limit local car taxes.
