Form CT-1040 EXT Instructions	
Form CT-1040 EXT only extends the time to fi le your Connecticut 
income tax return. Form CT-1040 EXT does not extend the time 
to pay your income tax. You must pay the amount of tax that you 
expect to owe on or before the original due date of the return. See 
Interest and Penalty.
You may qualify for a six-month extension of time to pay your tax. 
To request this extension, you must fi le Form CT-1127, Application 
for Extension of Time for Payment of Income Tax, with your timely 
fi led Connecticut income tax return or extension. 
Purpose: Use Form CT-1040 EXT to request a six-month 
extension to fi le your Connecticut income tax return for individuals. 
This form also extends the time to fi le your individual use tax. It is 
not  necessary to include a reason for the Connecticut extension 
request if you have already fi led an extension request on federal 
Form 4868 with the Internal Revenue Service. If you did not fi le 
federal Form 4868, you can apply for a six-month extension to fi le 
your Connecticut income tax return provided you have good cause 
for your request.
Exception: If you expect to owe no additional Connecticut 
income tax for the 2012 taxable year, after taking into account any 
Connecticut income tax withheld from your wages or any estimated 
Connecticut income tax payments you have made, or both, and 
you have requested an extension of time to fi le your 2012 federal 
income tax return, you are not required to fi le Form CT-1040 EXT. 
The Department of Revenue Services (DRS) will automatically grant 
you a six-month extension of time to fi le your 2012 Connecticut 
income tax return. If you did not request an extension of time to fi le 
your federal income tax return, but you are requesting an extension 
of time to fi le your Connecticut income tax return, you must fi le 
Form CT-1040 EXT whether or not you owe additional Connecticut 
income tax.
