  • What is your filing status Connecticut

    Your filing status for Connecticut income tax purposes must be the same as your filing status for federal income tax purposes with the following exceptions:

    If one spouse is a resident and the other is a nonresident, each spouse who is required to file a Connecticut income tax return must file as married filing separately for Connecticut income tax purposes even if they file a joint federal income tax return unless they both consent to be treated as residents.
    If one spouse is a resident or a nonresident and the other spouse is a part-year resident, they must file as married filing separately for Connecticut income tax purposes even if they file a joint federal return.
    If one spouse is a nonresident with Connecticut source income and the other is a nonresident with no Connecticut source income, the spouse with Connecticut source income must file as married filing separately even if they file a joint federal return unless they both consent to be treated as if they have Connecticut source income. For example, if you are a resident of Rhode Island who works in Connecticut, but your spouse is a resident of Rhode Island who has no Connecticut source income, you should file a separate Form CT-1040NR/PY even if you and your spouse file a joint federal income tax return. or
    If both spouses are part-year residents and moved into or out of Connecticut at different times during the taxable year, both spouses must file as "married, filing separate." However, if both spouses are part-year residents and moved into or out of Connecticut on the same day and filed jointly for federal income tax purposes, a joint Connecticut income tax return, Form CT-1040NR/PY, must be filed.
    NOTE: Recent legislation allows same sex partners to enter into a civil union in Connecticut on or after October 1, 2005. However, civil union partners are not permitted to file a joint Connecticut income tax return for 2005. Civil union partners must file their 2006 Connecticut income tax returns using one of the following filing statuses: civil union filing jointly or civil union filing separately
