If you answered yes to either, you may want to hear what the Tax Commissioner for the State of CT had to say yesterday. Mark Boughton is that person, the former Danbury Mayor now oversees all tax matter in the Nutmeg State and he joined the Ethan and Lou Show on Thursday (11/4/21) to announce a new tax amnesty program, saying:

"We are at D.R.S, the place I work at, the Department of Revenue Services, we are in the middle of a tax amnesty program which started on Monday, ends on January 31st.

If you have a beef with us, if you think you don't owe money or if you think that you want to clear it up, maybe you haven't paid, and maybe your accountant is working on it or your lawyer, or whatever, we're offering amnesty. Seventy-five percent off of any interest we want to charge you and no penalties and you can get right.

Get right with the State, right? Because we need the money to pay for our Fire fighters, Police officers, all of that stuff."

Later Boughton said:

"Yeah, we are offering a settlement, this is my brainstorm and they can come on in, in the next couple of months and you go to our website, that's

That's, it's a good deal and we'll work with you and we'll make it go away and you don't have to get any more letters, calls, you don't have to worry. Especially businesses, because a lot of these are very small amounts.

Although I have to tell you guys, I settled a dispute yesterday, the initial bill was $3.2 million, these are heavy hitters and using the amnesty legislation and all the stuff I got through last year, I got it down to $1.2 million and the guy wrote me a personal check for $1.2 million for the State of Connecticut."

There is plenty more to the interview. In it, Mark challenges Lou to a $100,000 charity fist fight, tells the guys why he's ghosted them for the past few months and shares a story about golfing with the Governor of Connecticut.

A Tour of the Ice Arena for the Danbury Hat Tricks Victorious Weekend

This season is underway at the Danbury Ice Arena and it began in victorious fashion. I was in the Arena for Friday and Saturday's games and I experienced the entire thing for you. Once you are done checking this out, you are going to buy tickets, that is not a threat, it's just what is going to happen.

There is something for everyone inside that arena, even if you don't like hockey. There were a ton of activities to be a part of in the Arena, even if you don't like hockey. That's not my style, if I go for a game I want to watch it but all the extras don't hurt the experience one bit,
