Connecticut state income tax refunds are generally issued within 10-12 weeks from the date that a paper return is received.
Tax Refunds for electronically filed, WebFiled or Telefiled returns generally are issued within 4 business days of the receipt of the return.
Call our automated refund system 24 hours a day and check the status of your refund by calling 1-800-382-9463 (Connecticut calls outside the Greater Hartford calling area only) or 860-297-5962 (from anywhere). You will need your social security number (or your spouse's social security number if it is a joint return and your spouse's number is entered first on the return) and the exact amount of the refund request as reported on your income tax return. Enter the whole dollar amount of the refund you requested followed by the # sign. (Do not include cents.) For example, if you requested a refund of $375, enter 375#. You can only check the status of the refund for the current filing season by telephone.
IMPORTANT: If your Connecticut state tax refund request was for a whole dollar amount, you must enter the dollar amount followed by the # sign. For example: if your refund request was for $500, enter 500#
