Electronic Filing Information for Software Developers

Software developers are required to successfully complete the Connecticut Participant Acceptance Testing System (PATS) test for Legacy e-file and and ATS testing for Modernized e-File (MeF).  The purpose of PATS/ATS is to ensure that the software meets Connecticut specifications, the electronic returns have no validation or computation errors, and the returns can be transmitted in the correct format.
