A Guide For Filers of Multiple Form CT-1041ES

This Publication has been superseded by IP 2008(28)

Purpose: This Informational Publication explains the payment filing requirements for banking institutions that make estimated fiduciary income tax payments for multiple accounts. A format sample for payment is below.

Effective Date: Effective upon issuance.

Statutory Authority: Conn. Gen. Stat. §12-722.

General Instructions: Banking institutions making estimated fiduciary income tax payments for multiple accounts can issue a single check as payment for up to 50 fiduciary accounts. However, all payments must be for the same quarter. Filing eligibility for a calendar quarter is determined based upon the number of payments in that calendar quarter. The fiduciary must have a minimum of two accounts for which estimated payments are required in a filing quarter. When the fiduciary has more than 50 accounts, the fiduciary may make payments in payment group(s) of no more than 50 accounts to be included in a single check. When filing more than one payment group, the last payment group may contain less than 50 accounts.

Form Instructions: The following format should be used when filing for Form CT-1041ES, Estimated Connecticut Income Tax Payment Coupon for Trusts and Estates, for multiple accounts:

  • Upper left hand corner has the name of the banking institution and the banking institution’s mailing address;
  • Include the banking institution contact name and phone number;
  • Tax year must be clearly stated;
  • List the tax quarter for the estimated tax;
  • Include the banking institution check number;
  • The table will have four columns with the following column labels in this order:
    • Entry Number (consecutive, beginning with one), not to exceed 50 per check
    • Account Name;
    • Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN); and
    • Amount paid (all dollar amount must have comas and decimal points)
  • The table must have a line between each entry;
  • The bottom of the page (footer) must contain page number with total number of pages; and
  • After the last entry, just outside the table, there must be a Total. This dollar amount should be under the Amount Paid column.  This amount should be the amount of the check submitted by the banking institution for each group of 50.

Fiduciaries using this format and method of payment must submit the above information on paper. Group estimated payments cannot be made electronically.
