HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut has launched a video to help Spanish-speaking residents navigate state tax forms.

Department of Revenue Services Commissioner Kevin Sullivan makes the introduction to the nearly 13-minute video in Spanish. A Spanish-speaking woman takes over to walk taxpayers through state tax forms. The video demonstrates how to electronically file a state sales and use tax return.

He says business owners "cannot comply with state tax laws if they don't understand what is expected of them."

Spanish-speaking residents represent about 15 percent of Connecticut's population, and nearly 14,000 Hispanic-owned businesses are in the state.

The idea for the video emerged from a task force established to evaluate the state's communications policies. It's the first of what Sullivan says he hopes will become numerous Spanish-language video tutorials.
