[(b) In lieu of filing a return pursuant to this section, the commissioner may, pursuant to requirements and conditions set forth in forms and instructions, provide for the filing of a group return for electing nonresident partners by a partnership doing business in this state or having income derived from or connected with sources within this state. As required by the commissioner, the partnership as agent for the electing partners shall make the payments of tax, estimated tax, additions to tax, interest and penalties otherwise required to be paid by the electing partners. The provisions of this subsection shall also apply to trusts and estates, and to S corporations, and wherever reference is made in this subsection to partnerships and partners, such reference shall be construed as including trusts and estates and beneficiaries thereof, and S corporations and shareholders thereof. ]

(b) (1) With respect to each of its nonresident partners, each partnership doing business in this state or having income derived from or connected with sources within this state shall, for each taxable year, either timely file with the commissioner a group return, as provided in subdivision (2) of this subsection, or make payment to the commissioner as provided in subdivision (3) of this subsection.

(2) (A) (i) A partnership with two or more qualified electing nonresident partners for a taxable year may file a group return. A group return under this subdivision shall be considered a group of separate returns and shall satisfy the filing requirements otherwise separately imposed on each qualified electing nonresident partner included in the group return by this chapter.

(ii) Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed as precluding the commissioner, in his or her sole discretion, from requiring the filing of a separate tax return under this chapter by a qualified electing nonresident partner.

(iii) Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed as excusing a partner on whose behalf income tax has been paid under this subdivision by a partnership from the obligation to file his or her own separate tax return under this chapter if the conditions enumerated in subparagraph (B) of this subdivision are not met by such partner. In such event, such partner shall receive credit for the income tax paid under this subdivision by the partnership on his or her behalf, provided no overpayment attributable to such tax having been paid at the highest marginal tax rate in effect under section 12-700 for the taxable year shall be refunded or credited to the partner.

(B) As used in this subsection, a "qualified electing nonresident partner" means a partner who meets all of the following conditions: (i) The partner was a nonresident individual for the entire taxable year; (ii) the partner did not maintain a permanent place of abode in Connecticut at any time during the taxable year; (iii) the only source of income derived from or connected with Connecticut sources of the partner, or the partner and his or her spouse if a joint federal income tax return is or shall be made, is from one or more pass-through entities, as defined in subparagraph (C) of subdivision (3) of this subsection; (iv) the partner waives the right to claim any Connecticut personal exemption under section 12-702 and any Connecticut personal credit under section 12-703; (v) the partner does not have Connecticut alternative minimum tax liability under section 12-700a for the taxable year; (vi) the partner has the same taxable year as the other qualified electing nonresident partners; and (vii) the partner elects to be included in a group return by completing and delivering to the partnership a form prescribed by the commissioner for such purpose prior to the filing of the group return by the partnership. By making such election, which shall be binding upon the partner's heirs, representatives, assigns, successors, executors and administrators, the partner expressly consents to personal jurisdiction in Connecticut for Connecticut income tax purposes and waives his or her right to request, on his or her own behalf or with others making such election, an extension of time to pay Connecticut income tax. A qualified electing nonresident partner may neither revoke an election after delivering to the partnership an election form nor make an election after the fifteenth day of the fourth month following the close of such partner's taxable year. The election form shall be maintained on file by the partnership and shall be subject to inspection by the department.

(C) A partnership filing a group return on behalf of its qualified electing nonresident partners shall show the exact name and address of the partnership as shown on its informational return under section 12-726, as amended by this act, the taxable year of the partnership and the taxable year of the qualified electing nonresident partners. A group return shall be signed by a partner having the authority to act as an agent for all qualified electing nonresident partners. The election form, as described in subparagraph (B) of this subdivision, shall constitute written evidence of such authority and of the election by the partner to be included in the group return. The due date of the group return is the fifteenth day of the fourth month following the close of the taxable year of the qualified electing nonresident partners. In addition, the partnership shall include with the group return a schedule showing each qualified electing nonresident partner's name and address; Social Security number; distributive share of such partnership's separately and nonseparately computed items, as described in Section 702(a) of the Internal Revenue Code, to the extent derived from or connected with sources within this state, as determined under this chapter; distributive share of any modification described in section 12-701 which relates to an item of such partnership's income, gain, loss or deduction, to the extent derived from or connected with sources within this state, as determined under this chapter; income tax under this chapter, as computed by multiplying the partner's distributive share of (i) such partnership's separately and nonseparately computed items, as described in Section 702(a) of the Internal Revenue Code, to the extent derived from or connected with sources within this state, and (ii) any modification described in section 12-701 which relates to an item of such partnership's income, gain, loss or deduction, to the extent derived from or connected with sources within this state, by the highest marginal tax rate in effect under section 12-700 for the taxable year; and estimated tax paid, if any, under section 12-722. As required by the commissioner, the partnership as agent for the qualified electing nonresident partners shall make the payments of tax, estimated tax, additions to tax, interest and penalties otherwise required to be paid by such partners.

(D) The provisions of this subdivision shall also apply to a trust or estate with two or more qualified electing nonresident beneficiaries, and wherever reference is made in this subdivision to a partnership and its partners, such reference shall be construed as including a trust or estate and the beneficiaries thereof.

(3) (A) Any payment under this subdivision shall be in an amount equal to the highest marginal tax rate in effect under section 12-700 for the taxable year multiplied by the subject partner's distributive share of (i) such partnership's separately and nonseparately computed items, as described in Section 702(a) of the Internal Revenue Code, to the extent derived from or connected with sources within this state, as determined under this chapter, and (ii) any modification described in section 12-701 which relates to an item of such partnership's income, gain, loss or deduction, to the extent derived from or connected with sources within this state, as determined under this chapter. Any amount paid by a partnership to this state with respect to any taxable year pursuant to this subdivision shall be considered to be a payment by the partner on account of the income tax imposed on the partner for such taxable year pursuant to this chapter. A partnership shall not be liable to, and shall be entitled to recover a payment made pursuant to this subdivision from, the partner on whose behalf the payment was made. Any estimated tax installment shall be made on or before the due date of such installment pursuant to section 12-722, and any other payment for a taxable year shall be made on or before the date the annual return for such taxable year is required to be filed pursuant to section 12-726, as amended by this act. The partnership shall furnish, on a form prescribed by the commissioner, to each partner on whose behalf payment was made under this subdivision no later than the fifteenth day of the third month following the close of the partnership's taxable year a record of the amount of the tax paid on behalf of such partner by the partnership with respect to the taxable year.

(B) Notwithstanding any provision of subparagraph (A) of this subdivision, a partnership shall not be required to make a payment on account of the income tax imposed on a partner for a taxable year pursuant to this chapter if (i) the partner's distributive share of partnership income, to the extent derived from or connected with sources within this state, as reflected on the partnership's annual return for the taxable year under section 12-726, as amended by this act, is less than one thousand dollars; (ii) the department has determined by regulation, ruling or instruction that the partner's income is not subject to the provisions of this subdivision; (iii) the partner has elected to be included in a group return being filed by the partnership under subdivision (2) of this subsection; or (iv) the partnership is a publicly traded partnership, as defined in Section 7704(b) of the Internal Revenue Code, that is treated as a partnership for federal income tax purposes and that has agreed to file the annual return pursuant to section 12-726, as amended by this act, and to report therewith the name, address, Social Security number or federal employer identification number, and other information required by the department concerning each unitholder whose distributive share of partnership income, to the extent derived from or connected with sources within this state, as reflected on such annual return, is more than five hundred dollars.

(C) If a member of a pass-through entity, referred to in this subparagraph as an "upper-tier pass-through entity", is itself a pass-through entity, the member, referred to in this subparagraph as a "lower-tier pass-through entity", shall be subject to the same requirements to make payment, on behalf of its members, of the income tax imposed on those members pursuant to this chapter that apply to the upper-tier pass-through entity under this subdivision. The department shall apply the income tax paid by the upper-tier pass-through entity, on behalf of the lower-tier pass-through entity, to the income tax required to paid by the lower-tier pass-through entity, on behalf of its members. For purposes of this subdivision, "pass-through entity" means an S corporation, general partnership, limited partnership, limited liability partnership or limited liability company that is treated as a partnership for federal income tax purposes; and "member" means a shareholder of an S corporation, a partner in a general partnership, a limited partnership, or a limited liability partnership and a member of a limited liability company that is treated as a partnership for federal income tax purposes.

(c) (1) With respect to each of its nonresident shareholders, each S corporation doing business in this state or having income derived from or connected with sources within this state shall, for each taxable [period] year, either [(A)] timely file with the commissioner [an agreement] a group return on behalf of its qualified electing nonresident shareholders, as provided in subdivision (2) of this subsection, or [(B)] make payment to the commissioner as provided in subdivision (3) of this subsection. [Any S corporation which timely files an agreement as provided in said subdivision (2) with respect to a nonresident shareholder for a taxable period shall be considered to have timely filed such an agreement for each subsequent taxable period. Any S corporation which does not timely file such an agreement for a taxable period shall not be precluded from timely filing such an agreement for subsequent taxable periods. ]

[(2) An agreement under this subdivision shall be an agreement by a nonresident shareholder of the S corporation (A) to file a return in accordance with the provisions of this chapter and to make timely payment of all taxes imposed on the shareholder by this state with respect to the income of the S corporation and (B) to be subject to personal jurisdiction in this state for purposes of the collection of income taxes, together with related additions to tax, interest and penalties, imposed on the shareholder by this state with respect to the income of the S corporation. Such an agreement shall be considered to be timely filed for a taxable period and for all subsequent taxable periods if it is filed on or before the date the annual return for such taxable period is required to be filed pursuant to section 12-726. ]

(2) (A) (i) An S corporation with two or more qualified electing nonresident shareholders for a taxable year may file a group return. A group return under this subdivision shall be considered a group of separate returns and shall satisfy the filing requirements otherwise separately imposed on each qualified electing nonresident shareholder included in the group return by this chapter.

(ii) Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed as precluding the commissioner, in his or her sole discretion, from requiring the filing of a separate tax return under this chapter by a qualified electing nonresident shareholder.

(iii) Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed as excusing a shareholder on whose behalf income tax has been paid under this subdivision by an S corporation from the obligation to file his or her own separate tax return under this chapter if the conditions enumerated in subparagraph (B) of this subdivision are not met by the shareholder. In such event, the shareholder shall receive credit for the income tax paid under this subdivision by the S corporation on his or her behalf, provided no overpayment attributable to such tax having been paid at the highest marginal tax rate in effect under section 12-700 for the taxable year shall be refunded or credited to the shareholder.

(B) As used in this subsection, "qualified electing nonresident shareholder" means a shareholder who meets all of the following conditions: (i) The shareholder was a nonresident individual for the entire taxable year; (ii) the shareholder did not maintain a permanent place of abode in Connecticut at any time during the taxable year; (iii) the only source of income derived from or connected with Connecticut sources of the shareholder, or the shareholder and his or her spouse if a joint federal income tax return is or shall be made, is from one or more pass-through entities, as defined in subparagraph (C) of subdivision (3) of subsection (b) of this section; (iv) the shareholder waives the right to claim any Connecticut personal exemption under section 12-702 and any Connecticut personal credit under section 12-703; (v) the shareholder does not have Connecticut alternative minimum tax liability under section 12-700a for the taxable year; (vi) the shareholder has the same taxable year as the other qualified electing nonresident shareholders; and (vii) the shareholder elects to be included in a group return by completing and delivering to the S corporation an election form prescribed by the commissioner for such purpose prior to the filing of the group return by the S corporation. By making such election, which shall be binding upon the shareholder's heirs, representatives, assigns, successors, executors and administrators, the shareholder expressly consents to personal jurisdiction in Connecticut for Connecticut income tax purposes and waives his or her right to request, on his or her own behalf or with others making such election, an extension of time to pay Connecticut income tax. A qualified electing nonresident shareholder may neither revoke an election after delivering to the S corporation an election form nor make an election after the fifteenth day of the fourth month following the close of such shareholder's taxable year. The election form shall be maintained on file by the S corporation and shall be subject to inspection by the department.

(C) An S corporation filing a group return on behalf of its qualified electing nonresident shareholders shall show the exact name and address of the S corporation as shown on its informational return under section 12-726, as amended by this act, the taxable year of the S corporation and the taxable year of the qualified electing nonresident shareholders.

(n) Abandoned property fund bonds may be secured by an indenture of trust by and between the state and a corporate trustee, which may be any trust company or bank having the powers of a trust company within or without the state. Such indenture of trust may contain such provisions for protecting and enforcing the rights and remedies of the bondowners as may be reasonable and proper and not in violation of law, including covenants setting forth the custody, safeguarding and application of all moneys. The state may provide by such indenture of trust for the payment of the pledged revenues or other receipts, funds or moneys to the trustee under such indenture of trust or to any other depository, and for the method of disbursement thereof, with such safeguards and restrictions as it may determine. All expenses incurred in carrying out such indenture of trust may be treated as Special Abandoned Property Fund financing costs.

(o) The Treasurer shall have power to purchase abandoned property fund bonds issued pursuant to this section out of any funds available therefor. The Treasurer may hold, pledge, cancel or resell such abandoned property fund bonds subject to and in accordance with agreements with bondowners.

(p) Whether or not any abandoned property fund bonds issued pursuant to this section are of the form and character to qualify as negotiable instruments under the terms of title 42a of the general statutes, the abandoned property fund bonds are hereby made negotiable instruments within the meaning of and for all purposes of said title 42a, subject only to the provisions of the abandoned property fund bonds.

Unless the proceedings provide otherwise, proceeds from investments authorized by this subsection, less amounts required under the proceedings authorizing the issuance of abandoned property fund bonds for the payment of Special Abandoned Property Fund financing costs relating to such abandoned property fund bonds, shall be credited to the Special Abandoned Property Fund.

(r) Any abandoned property fund bonds at any time outstanding may, at any time and from time to time, be refunded by the state by the issuance of its refunding abandoned property fund bonds in such amounts as the Treasurer may deem necessary, but not to exceed an amount sufficient to refund the principal of the abandoned property fund bonds to be so refunded, to pay any unpaid interest on such abandoned property fund bonds and any premiums and commissions necessary to be paid in connection with such abandoned property fund bonds and to pay costs and expenses which the Treasurer may deem necessary or advantageous in connection with the authorization, sale and issuance of refunding abandoned property fund bonds. Any such refunding may be effected whether the abandoned property fund bonds to be refunded shall have matured or shall thereafter mature. All refunding abandoned property fund bonds issued under this subsection shall be payable solely from the revenues or other receipts, funds or moneys out of which the abandoned property fund bonds to be refunded thereby are payable and shall be subject to and may be secured in accordance with the provisions of this section.

In computing such aggregate amount of indebtedness at any time, there shall be excluded or deducted, as the case may be, (1) the principal amount of all such obligations as may be certified by the Treasurer (A) as issued in anticipation of revenues to be received by the state during the period of twelve calendar months next following their issuance and to be paid by application of such revenue, or (B) as having been refunded or replaced by other indebtedness the proceeds and projected earnings on which or other funds are held in escrow to pay and are sufficient to pay the principal, interest and any redemption premium until maturity or earlier planned redemption of such indebtedness, or (C) as issued and outstanding in anticipation of particular bonds then unissued but fully authorized to be issued in the manner provided by law for such authorization, provided, so long as any of said obligations are outstanding, the entire principal amount of such particular bonds thus authorized shall be deemed to be outstanding and be included in such aggregate amount of indebtedness, or (D) as payable solely from revenues of particular public improvements, (2) the amount which may be certified by the Treasurer as the aggregate value of cash and securities in debt retirement funds of the state to be used to meet principal of outstanding obligations included in such aggregate amount of indebtedness, (3) every such amount as may be certified by the Secretary of the Office of Policy and Management as the estimated payments on account of the costs of any public work or improvement thereafter to be received by the state from the United States or agencies thereof and to be used, in conformity with applicable federal law, to meet principal of obligations included in such aggregate amount of indebtedness, (4) all authorized and issued indebtedness to fund any budget deficits of the state for any fiscal year ending on or before June 30, 1991, (5) all authorized indebtedness to fund the program created pursuant to section 32-285, (6) all authorized and issued indebtedness to fund any budget deficits of the state for any fiscal year ending on or before June 30, 2002, [and] (7) all authorized indebtedness issued pursuant to section 56 of this act, and (8) any indebtedness represented by any agreement entered into pursuant to subsection (b) or (c) of section 3-20a as certified by the Treasurer, provided the indebtedness in connection with which such agreements were entered into shall be included in such aggregate amount of indebtedness. In computing the amount of outstanding indebtedness, only the accreted value of any capital appreciation obligation or any zero coupon obligation which has accreted and been added to the stated initial value of such obligation as of the date of any computation shall be included.

Sec. 63. Section 3-24c of the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective from passage):

Notwithstanding any other provisions of the general statutes to the contrary, the Treasurer may sell participation certificates or securities of the Tax-Exempt Proceeds Fund for investment to the General Fund, bond funds, the Special Transportation Fund, the Local Bridge Revolving Fund, the Special Abandoned Property Fund, the Educational Excellence Trust Fund, the Rental Housing Assistance Trust Fund, trust funds administered by the Treasurer, and all such other funds the moneys of which by law the Treasurer is responsible for investing.
