Copies of Returns
 
Income Tax Returns:  You can print copies of most income tax returns right now using the Taxpayer Service Center (TSC):
 
To Access Returns (available for current year and 2 prior years):
  1. Log into your individual account on the TSC-IND (for individual income tax).
  2. From the main menu select View Returns.
  3. Select the return by clicking on the confirmation number.
  4. Select “print” from your browser tool bar.

**Note: If the return you wish to print does not appear on the View Returns screen you must complete Form LGL-002 and mail it to the DRS.  It will take approximately 3 weeks from the time we receive your request to send you a copy of you return(s).

Copies of Someone Else's Return:   To obtain a copy of a return filed by someone other than yourself, you must have authorization from that person.  That person should complete Form LGL-001 giving you power of attorney to request the return.  Send Form LGL-001 with Form LGL-002 to request another person's return.

There is NO FEE for obtaining copies of filed returns.

Warnings/Common Filing Errors
  • Be sure to send all 4 pages of the return
  • Be sure to include any applicable schedules (CT-EITC)
  • Complete all schedules for which you are claiming credits - for example if you are claiming the property tax credit be sure to complete Schedule 3 - Property tax credit
  • If filing an extension of time to file and you owe money this will not extend your time to pay.  Money is due by due date of the return regardless.
