Connecticut State Tax Credits and the Personal Exemption
Taxpayers in Connecticut can claim a personal exemption up to $24,000 on their state income tax return. The amount available varies based on filing status. Single filers with a yearly income of $0 to $30,000 can qualify for a $15,000 personal exemption. Single filers earning more than $44,000 per year do not qualify to claim a personal exemption. Individuals filing as head of household and earn up to $38,000 are eligible to claim a personal exemption of $19,000. If that same filer earns more than $56,000, he or she cannot claim an exemption. If an individual files married filing separately they can earn claim up to a $12,000 personal exemption based on their total wages earned.
Generally speaking, Connecticut uses tax credits as deductions on their state returns. They also treat the personal exemption as a credit, meaning it reduces a taxpayer’s tax liability after it’s calculated.
