Attention Retirees: New State Tax Requirement Effective January 1, 2018

 
Per Connecticut General Statute 12-705, as amended by 2017 Connecticut Public Acts 147, 6, beginning on January 1st, 2018, all retirees living in the State of Connecticut (from both the public and private sectors) must submit a 2018 Form CT-W4P to their payers. 

The state Department of Revenue Services has instructed all payers to withhold CT state income tax at 6.99% until a 2018 Form CT-W4P has been received for each applicable retiree. Retirees are no longer permitted to specify a flat dollar amount to be withheld. Failure to provide the state with a properly completed 2018 Form CT-W4P will result in 6.99% withholding from retirees payment(s) (excluding those retirees who are under the wage threshold).  Please read the instructions carefully before completing the form.

Return completed forms by mail to:

CT Teachers' Retirement Board

765 Asylum Ave 2nd Floor

Hartford CT 06105

 

or by fax to 860-525-6018.
