Connecticut treatment of foreign income
You Can Be Domiciled But Not Pay State Income Tax
If you are domiciled in Connecticut, you will be treated as a nonresident if you meet all of the following conditions:
- You maintained no permanent place of abode in Connecticut for the entire taxable year;
- You maintained a permanent place of abode outside of Connecticut for the entire taxable year;
- You spend no more than 30 days in Connecticut during the taxable year.
If you have a permanent residence in Connecticut but live in a foreign country for 450 days out of 548 days, you have no tax liability in Connecticut provided you do not spend more than 90 days in the state during that time.
A "permanent place of abode" is a residence that you permanently maintain, whether or not you own it. An abode is not deemed permanent if itis maintained only during a temporary stay for the accomplishment of a particular purpose.
When you are ready to have your return prepared please send me an email to get the process started.
