(2) If an employer that paid Connecticut wages to an employee during a calendar year subsequently files a Form CT-941 for a calendar quarter of such calendar year as a final return, the employer shall furnish to the employee, on or before the last day of the month in which the final return is required to be filed, a federal Form W-2, showing the correct amount of Connecticut wages paid by the employer to the employee and the correct amount of Connecticut income tax deducted and withheld from such wages.

(3) If an employee’s employment is terminated before the close of a calendar year, the employer, at the employer’s option, shall furnish the federal Form W-2 to the employee at any time after the termination but no later than January 31 of the succeeding year, except that if an employee whose employment is terminated before the close of a calendar year requests the employer to furnish the federal Form W-2 to the employee at a time earlier than January 31 of the succeeding year, and if there is no reasonable expectation on the part of both employer and employee of further employment during such calendar year, then the employer shall furnish the federal Form W-2 to the employee on or before (A) the later of (i) the thirtieth day after the date of the request or (ii) the thirtieth day after the date on which the last payment of wages is made, or (B) if the employer files a Form CT-941 for a calendar quarter of such calendar year as a final return, the date that the employer is required to furnish the federal Form W-2 to the employee under subdivision (2) of this subsection, whichever is earlier.
