Under Connecticut law, if the adoption of combined reporting, which became effective for tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2016, resulted in certain conditions, the combined group was entitled to a deduction against net income to offset the financial statement impact. Publicly- traded companies were required to file a Statement of Net Deferred Tax Liability Deduction on or before July 3, 2017 to preserve the right to take the deduction. The deduction was originally scheduled to be taken over a seven-year period beginning with the combined group’s income year that commenced in 2018. Under recently-enacted legislation, the period over which the deduction can be taken was extended to thirty years. In addition, Senate Bill 1503 has been sent to the Governor. If signed, this bill would further revise the law to make 2021 (rather than 2018) the first tax year the deduction would be allowed to be claimed by combined groups.
