Electronic Filing and Payment Waiver

Only taxpayers that receive a waiver from electronic filing from DRS may file a paper version of this form. To request a waiver from the electronic filing requirement, visit portal.ct.gov/DRS and complete Form DRS-EWVR, Electronic Filing and Payment Waiver Request.


Rounding Off to Whole Dollars

You must round off cents to the nearest whole dollar on your returns and schedules. Round down to the next lowest dollar all amounts that include 1 through 49 cents. Round up to the next highest dollar all amounts that include 50 through 99 cents. However, if you need to add two or more amounts to compute the amount to enter on a line, include cents and round off only the total.


      Example: Add two amounts ($1.29 + $3.21) to compute the total ($4.50) to enter on a line. $4.50 is rounded to $5.00 and entered on a line.


New Owners

Do not use the previous owner’s form to file your return. Any change in ownership requires a new Connecticut Tax Registration Number.

To authorize one or more individuals to represent you or your business before the Department of Revenue Services (DRS), use LGL-001, Power of Attorney.
