Your signature Date Spouse’s signature Date Paid preparer’s signature Date Telephone Firm’s name, address, and ZIP code – – Preparer’s PTIN FEIN Form CT-1127 Instructions Purpose: The Commissioner of Revenue Services may grant an extension of time for payment of your Connecticut income or pass-through entity tax liability and your individual use tax if you can show it will cause you undue hardship to pay the tax on the date it is due. Form CT‑1127 must be filed with the Commissioner on or before the fifteenth day of the fourth month following the close of your taxable year. This is April 15 if your taxable year is the calendar year. For Pass‑Through Entity Tax returns (Form CT‑1065/CT‑1120SI), Form CT‑1127 must be filed by the fifteenth day of the third month following the close of your taxable year. This is March 15 if your taxable year is the calendar year. We will notify you only if your request is denied. If the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, your extension request will be considered timely if filed on the next business day. Undue hardship means more than mere inconvenience. You must show that you will have substantial financial loss if you pay your tax on the date it is due. (For example, a loss could be caused by having to sell property at a sacrifice price.) You must show you do not have enough cash above necessary working capital to pay the tax. In determining cash available, include anything you can convert into cash and show current market prices. Also show you are unable to borrow money to pay the tax except under terms that will cause you severe loss and hardship. Who May File Form CT‑1127: Filers of the following forms may file Form CT‑1127: • Form CT‑1040, Connecticut Resident Income Tax Return; • Form CT‑1040NR/PY, Connecticut Nonresident and Part‑Year Resident Income Tax Return; • Form CT‑1041, Connecticut Income Tax Return for Trusts and Estates; and • Form CT‑1065/CT‑1120SI, Connecticut Pass‑Through Entity Tax Return. Limitation: As a general rule, an extension of time to pay any part of the tax shown on an income tax or pass‑through entity tax return is limited to six months from the date that payment is due. Security: Security satisfactory to the Commissioner may be required as a condition for granting an extension. This is to assure that the risk of loss to the State of Connecticut will be no greater at the end of the extension period than it was at the beginning. The determination of the type of security, if any is required, will depend on the circumstances in each case. You will be contacted by DRS if any security is required. Interest and Penalty: If the extension of time for payment is approved, no penalty will be assessed if the tax due is paid on or before the end of the extension period. If the extension of time for payment is not granted or the tax due is not paid on or before the end of the extension period, a penalty of 10% of the amount of tax underpaid will be applied. In either case, a billing statement will be issued to you. If after the extension period you are subject to a penalty that you believe was unjustly assessed, you may request a penalty waiver. To make a penalty waiver request, taxpayers must complete Form DRS‑PW, Request for Waiver of Civil Penalty. Taxpayers may mail Form DRS‑PW to the address listed below or fax it to the Operations Bureau/Penalty Waiver at 860-297-5727.

Where the time for payment of Connecticut income tax is extended, interest will accrue at 1% per month or fraction of a month on any balance due from the original due date of the Connecticut income tax return, determined without regard to any extension of time to file, to the date of actual payment.

Connecticut usually releases forms for the current tax year between January and April. We last updated Connecticut Form CT-1127 from the Department of Revenue Services in February 2021.
Form CT-1127 is a Connecticut Individual Income Tax form. The IRS and most states will grant an automatic 6-month extension of time to file income tax and other types of tax returns, which can be obtained by filing the proper extension request form. Obtaining an extension will prevent you from being subject to often very large failure-to-file penalties. However, in most cases this extension does not exempt you from the requirement to pay any tax owed in full by the return's original filing date.
About the Individual Income Tax
The IRS and most states collect a personal income tax, which is paid throughout the year via tax withholding or estimated income tax payments.
Most taxpayers are required to file a yearly income tax return in April to both the Internal Revenue Service and their state's revenue department, which will result in either a tax refund of excess withheld income or a tax payment if the withholding does not cover the taxpayer's entire liability. Every taxpayer's situation is different - please consult a CPA or licensed tax preparer to ensure that you are filing the correct tax forms!
