Business Entity Tax Return	
Business Entity Tax	 	
The business entity tax (BET) is an annual tax of $250 imposed on 
the following business types:
•	 S	corporations 	(Qualified	 subchapter	 S	subsidiaries	 (QSSS)	are	
not liable for the BET.);
•	 Limited 	liability 	companies 	(LLCs 	or 	SMLLCs) 	that 	are, 	for 	federal	
income	tax	purposes,	either:
•		 Treated	as	a	partnership,	if	it	has		two	or	more	members;	or
•	 Disregarded	 as	an	 entity	 separate	 from	its	owner,	 if	it	has	 a	
single member; 	
•		 Limited	liability	partnerships	(LLPs);		and	
•		 Limited	partnerships	(LPs).
The  BET  applies  to  those  business  entities  listed  above  if  either: 	 	
1) the entity was formed under Connecticut law; or 2) the entity was 
not  formed  under  Connecticut  law  but  is  required  to  register  with 
or	obtain	 a	certificate	 of	authority	 from	the	Connecticut	 Secretary	
of the State before transacting business in the state (regardless of 
whether  or  not  the  entities  have  complied  with  the  requirement). 
Visit  the  Department  of  Revenue  Services  (DRS)  website  at 	for additional information regarding the BET.
