Exchange of Tax Credit for Refund

A qualified small business that cannot take this tax credit in a taxable year in which it could otherwise be taken, as a result of having no tax liability, may exchange such credit with the State of Connecticut for a credit refund equal to 65% of the value of the credit or may elect to carry such credit forward as indicated above.

For the purpose of exchanging tax credits, qualified small business means a company that has gross income for the previous income year that does not exceed $70 million and has not met the gross income test through transactions with a related person, as defined in Conn. Gen. Stat. §12-217w.

A qualified small business that reports no net income (prior to the application of net operating losses) or pays either the minimum tax of $250 or the capital base tax under Conn. Gen. Stat. §12-219 is permitted to exchange research and development tax credits.

A qualified small business that wishes to exchange tax credits must complete Form CT-1120 XCH, Application for Exchange of Research and Development or Research and Experimental Expenditures Tax Credits by a Qualified Small Business, and submit it with the final tax return for the income year. See Conn. Gen. Stat. §12-217ee.
