Scam Alert for Connecticut LLCs01/03/2019
Originally published by the Connecticut Society of CPAs on January 2, 2019
CTCPA members are reporting that they and their clients organized as Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) are receiving a form requiring payment of a “$110 annual report fee” relative to a “2018 – Annual Report Instruction Form (Connecticut LLCs)” from Workplace Compliance Services, 1022 Boulevard #243, West Hartford, CT 06110. The form apparently is being received in the regular U.S. postal service in hard copy.
This is a scam and no payments should be made to Workplace Compliance Services.
The hard-copy form Workplace Compliance Services sends to LLCs looks deceivingly like a real state tax form, so it is easy to understand how people could be fooled by it.
We have been in contact with the Department of Revenue Services and they are aware of the issue, as are the Secretary of the State (SOTS) and the Attorney General.
