You will need your Social Security Number (SSN) to log into the Taxpayer Service Center.
Each tax return filed with a joint filing status is assigned a primary and a secondary taxpayer (the primary number is the first name and SSN listed on the return). In order the protect the confidentiality of your tax information, the TSC will only allow access using the primary SSN.
NOTE: If your filing status is changing for this tax year, you may not be able to use the TSC to file your return. For example, if you changed from a single status to a joint status (or from a joint status to a single status) you will not be able to use the TSC to file this year. You will still be able to file electronically using the Fed/State efile program or you must file a paper return.
If your Connecticut filing status is different from your Federal filing status you are not be able to use the TSC to file.
You may access the TSC by entering your prior year's federal adjusted gross income. Select a prior year from the drop-down list and enter the data.
If this is your first visit to the TSC, the SSN you entered is not in the Department of Revenue Services records. However, your SSN was found in the Department of Motor Vehicle records. To ensure the confidentiality of your tax information we must validate your identity using your driver's license number or Connecticut non-driver ID and name. If you choose a joint filing status, you will be prompted to enter similar information for the secondary taxpayer.

The Department of Revenue Services (DRS) issues status letters for the Connecticut income tax.
A status letter (also known as a Letter of Good Standing) is issued to a requesting taxpayer provided certain conditions are satisfied.
If DRS determines it is appropriate to issue a status letter, the letter will include the following information about a taxpayer as of the date it is issued:
The name of the taxpayer,
That they have filed all of its tax returns,
That they have paid all taxes that were reported due, and
Indicates any unfiled return(s) with a notation that the individual may, or may not, have a filing requirement for the particular periods displayed.
Note: DRS does not make any representations that it has conducted an audit examination or otherwise concluded that the information reported on the tax return(s) is correct.
