Filing Status:   If your filing status changed from the status you used on your last Connecticut income tax return, you may not be able to use the TSC to file your return.  The only filing status changes that are allowed in the TSC are changes within the same category.  For example, if you filed as "Single" or "Married filing Separately" last year, and you will file as "Head of Household" this year, you may use the TSC because those filing statuses are in the single filing category.  However, if you filed as Single or Married Filing Separately last year and will file jointly this year, you cannot use the TSC.  The filing statuses that you can choose will be in the Filing Status drop down box on this page.  If you are using a filing status that does not appear in the drop down box, you cannot file the return in the TSC.  If you cannot file on the TSC, go to our Filing Options page for more information.
