Use Form CT‑1120HP to claim the Historic Preservation tax credit (formerly the Historic Investment tax credit) available under Conn. Gen. Stat. § 10-416b to an owner rehabilitating a certified historic structure for mixed residential and non‑residential use. The Historic Preservation tax credit is administered by the Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD). The credit may only be claimed if a tax credit voucher has been issued by DECD. The Historic Preservation tax credit may be applied against the taxes administered under Chapters 207 (Insurance Companies and Health Care Centers Taxes), 208 (Corporation Business Tax), 209 (Air Carriers Tax), 210 (Railroad Companies Tax), 211 (Community Antenna Television Systems Tax), or 212 (Utility Companies Tax) of the Connecticut General Statutes. The tax credit may be claimed in the year in which the substantially rehabilitated certified historic structure is placed in service. In the case of projects completed in phases, the tax credit shall be prorated to the substantially rehabilitated identifiable portion of the building placed in service. Any owner allowed this tax credit may assign the credit to any individual or entity. An assignee must claim the credit in the same year that the assignor would have been eligible to claim the credit. An assignee may not further assign the tax credit. Carryforward/Carryback Any unused tax credit may be carried forward for five succeeding income years following the year in which the substantially rehabilitated structure was placed in service. No carryback is allowed. An assignee may carry forward any unused tax credit. Recapture This tax credit contains a recapture provision. If a voucher is issued for a non-residential portion of the project that is placed in service and then the residential portion of the project is not completed on time, then the owner shall recapture 100% of the credit issued for the portion previously placed in service.

Form CT-1120 HP is a Connecticut Corporate Income Tax form. States often have dozens of even hundreds of various tax credits, which, unlike deductions, provide a dollar-for-dollar reduction of tax liability. Some common tax credits apply to many taxpayers, while others only apply to extremely specific situations. In most cases, you will have to provide evidence to show that you are eligible for the tax credit, and calculate the amount of the credit to which you are entitled.
About the Corporate Income Tax
The IRS and most states require corporations to file an income tax return, with the exact filing requirements depending on the type of company.
Sole proprietorships or disregarded entities like LLCs are filed on Schedule C (or the state equivalent) of the owner's personal income tax return, flow-through entities like S Corporations or Partnerships are generally required to file an informational return equivilent to the IRS Form 1120S or Form 1065, and full corporations must file the equivalent of federal Form 1120 (and, unlike flow-through corporations, are often subject to a corporate tax liability).
Additional forms are available for a wide variety of specific entities and transactions including fiduciaries, nonprofits, and companies involved in other specific types of business.
