Residents of the state of Connecticut who earn income are taxed individually using a joint filing system, which is just one option states have when determining how to tax residents. The joint system uses the combined income of both spouses, essentially taxing the whole family as a single entity. This system is almost the same as the one used for the federal government.

Same-sex marriage is recognized in Connecticut, which means these couples are taxed the same as any other married taxpayers at the state level. When they file a federal income tax return, though, same-sex couples need to complete an individual return for each person.

Connecticut’s tax base starts with the taxpayer’s federal AGI, although there are major differences that exist at the state level when comparing the state and federal income tax rules.

Exemptions

State guidelines assess taxes on earned income, however there are some sources of income that are not included in the tax base. These sources include:

  • Interest accrued on U.S. Government bonds
  • 50% of military retirement pay
  • Social Security benefits if taxpayers have an income below $50,000. Joint or head of household filers: $60,000
  • Contributions/distributions from Connecticut Higher Education Trust Fund
  • Interest accrued on state individual development accounts
  • Distributions from the state Home Care Option Program for the Elderly

Deductions

Taking deductions on state tax returns is very similar to doing so on the federal level, as there aren’t major differences or requirements of itemization. There is one difference regarding the standard deduction, which is assessed on a sliding scale.

Filing Status Deduction Amount Income Phase-out
Single $14,000 $28,000 - $56,000
Head of Household $19,000 $38,000 - $56,000
