The Connecticut Department of Revenue Services has posted a helpful webpage explaining the new law on single-use plastic bags effective August 1, 2019. It contains definitions and detailed explanation of the new law created by Public Act 19-117, section 355. The DRS has also compiled a list of questions it has received concerning implementation of the single-use bag fee, and has issued an Office of the Commissioner Guidance Regarding the Single-Use Plastic Bag Fee. The Department of Revenue Services (DRS) will update this guidance as it receives additional questions.
