Such twenty-million-dollar limit shall be reduced by the amount of (I) any taxes paid to this state pursuant to section 12-642 by the decedent or the decedent's estate for Connecticut taxable gifts made on or after January 1, 2016, and (II) any taxes paid by the decedent's spouse to this state pursuant to section 12-642 for Connecticut taxable gifts made by the decedent on or after January 1, 2016, that are includable in the gross estate of the decedent, but in no event shall the amount be reduced below zero.

(E) With respect to the estates of decedents who die on or after January 1, 2018, a tax is imposed upon the transfer of the estate of each person who at the time of death was a resident of this state. The amount of the tax shall be determined using the schedule in subsection (g) of this section. A credit shall be allowed against such tax for (i) any taxes paid to this state pursuant to section 12-642 by the decedent or the decedent's estate for Connecticut taxable gifts made on or after January 1, 2005, and (ii) any taxes paid by the decedent's spouse to this state pursuant to section 12-642 for Connecticut taxable gifts made by the decedent on or after January 1, 2005, that are includable in the gross estate of the decedent, provided such credit shall not exceed the amount of tax imposed by this section. In no event shall the amount of tax payable under this section exceed twenty million dollars. Such twenty-million-dollar limit shall be reduced by the amount of (I) any taxes paid to this state pursuant to section 12-642 by the decedent or the decedent's estate for Connecticut taxable gifts made on or after January 1, 2016, and (II) any taxes paid by the decedent's spouse to this state pursuant to section 12-642 for Connecticut taxable gifts made by the decedent on or after January 1, 2016, that are includable in the gross estate of the decedent, but in no event shall the amount be reduced below zero.

(2) If real or tangible personal property of such decedent is located outside [of] this state, the amount of tax due under this section shall be reduced by an amount computed by multiplying the tax otherwise due pursuant to subdivision (1) of this subsection, without regard to the credit allowed for any taxes paid to this state pursuant to section 12-642, by a fraction, (A) the numerator of which is the value of that part of the decedent's gross estate attributable to real or tangible personal property located outside of the state, and (B) the denominator of which is the value of the decedent's gross estate.

(3) For a resident estate, the state shall have the power to levy the estate tax upon real property situated in this state, tangible personal property having an actual situs in this state and intangible personal property included in the gross estate of the decedent, regardless of where it is located. The state is permitted to calculate the estate tax and levy said tax to the fullest extent permitted by the Constitution of the United States.

(e) (1) (A) With respect to the estates of decedents who die on or after January 1, 2005, but prior to January 1, 2010, a tax is imposed upon the transfer of the estate of each person who at the time of death was a nonresident of this state. The amount of such tax shall be computed by multiplying (i) the amount of tax determined using the schedule in subsection (g) of this section by (ii) a fraction, the numerator of which is the value of that part of the decedent's gross estate over which this state has jurisdiction for estate tax purposes, and the denominator of which is the value of the decedent's gross estate. A credit shall be allowed against such tax for any taxes paid to this state pursuant to section 12-642, for Connecticut taxable gifts made on or after January 1, 2005, but prior to January 1, 2010.

(B) With respect to the estates of decedents who die on or after January 1, 2010, but prior to January 1, 2016, a tax is imposed upon the transfer of the estate of each person who at the time of death was a nonresident of this state. The amount of such tax shall be computed by multiplying (i) the amount of tax determined using the schedule in subsection (g) of this section by (ii) a fraction, the numerator of which is the value of that part of the decedent's gross estate over which this state has jurisdiction for estate tax purposes, and the denominator of which is the value of the decedent's gross estate. A credit shall be allowed against such tax for any taxes paid to this state pursuant to section 12-642, for Connecticut taxable gifts made on or after January 1, 2005, provided such credit shall not exceed the amount of tax imposed by this section.

(C) With respect to the estates of decedents who die on or after January 1, 2016, a tax is imposed upon the transfer of the estate of each person who at the time of death was a nonresident of this state. The amount of such tax shall be computed by multiplying (i) the amount of tax determined using the schedule in subsection (g) of this section by (ii) a fraction, the numerator of which is the value of that part of the decedent's gross estate over which this state has jurisdiction for estate tax purposes, and the denominator of which is the value of the decedent's gross estate. A credit shall be allowed against such tax for any taxes paid to this state pursuant to section 12-642 for Connecticut taxable gifts made on or after January 1, 2005, provided such credit shall not exceed the amount of tax imposed by this section. In no event shall the amount of tax payable under this section exceed twenty million dollars. Such twenty-million-dollar limit shall be reduced by the amount of (I) any taxes paid to this state pursuant to section 12-642 by the decedent or the decedent's estate for Connecticut taxable gifts made on or after January 1, 2016, and (II) any taxes paid by the decedent's spouse to this state pursuant to section 12-642 for Connecticut taxable gifts made by the decedent on or after January 1, 2016, that are includable in the gross estate of the decedent, but in no event shall the amount be reduced below zero.

(D) With respect to the estates of decedents who die on or after January 1, 2018, a tax is imposed upon the transfer of the estate of each person who at the time of death was a nonresident of this state. The amount of such tax shall be computed by multiplying the amount of tax determined using the schedule in subsection (g) of this section by a fraction, the numerator of which is the value of that part of the decedent's gross estate over which this state has jurisdiction for estate tax purposes, and the denominator of which is the value of the decedent's gross estate. A credit shall be allowed against such tax for (i) any taxes paid to this state pursuant to section 12-642 by the decedent or the decedent's estate for Connecticut taxable gifts made on or after January 1, 2005, and (ii) any taxes paid by the decedent's spouse to this state pursuant to section 12-642 for Connecticut taxable gifts made by the decedent on or after January 1, 2005, that are includable in the gross estate of the decedent, provided such credit shall not exceed the amount of tax imposed by this section. In no event shall the amount of tax payable under this section exceed twenty million dollars. Such twenty-million-dollar limit shall be reduced by the amount of (I) any taxes paid to this state pursuant to section 12-642 by the decedent or the decedent's estate for Connecticut taxable gifts made on or after January 1, 2016, and (II) any taxes paid by the decedent's spouse to this state pursuant to section 12-642 for Connecticut taxable gifts made by the decedent on or after January 1, 2016, that are includable in the gross estate of the decedent, but in no event shall the amount be reduced below zero.

(2) For a nonresident estate, the state shall have the power to levy the estate tax upon all real property situated in this state and tangible personal property having an actual situs in this state. The state is permitted to calculate the estate tax and levy said tax to the fullest extent permitted by the Constitution of the United States.

(f) (1) For purposes of the tax imposed under this section, the value of the Connecticut taxable estate shall be determined taking into account all of the deductions available under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, specifically including, but not limited to, the deduction available under Section 2056(b)(7) of said code for a qualifying income interest for life in a surviving spouse.

(2) An election under said Section 2056(b)(7) may be made for state estate tax purposes regardless of whether any such election is made for federal estate tax purposes. The value of the gross estate shall include the value of any property in which the decedent had a qualifying income interest for life for which an election was made under this subsection.

(g) (1) With respect to the estates of decedents dying on or after January 1, 2005, but prior to January 1, 2010, the tax based on the Connecticut taxable estate shall be as provided in the following schedule:

(h) (1) For the purposes of this chapter, each decedent shall be presumed to have died a resident of this state. The burden of proof in an estate tax proceeding shall be upon any decedent's estate claiming exemption by reason of the decedent's alleged nonresidency.

(2) Any person required to make and file a tax return under this chapter, believing that the decedent died a nonresident of this state, may file a request for determination of domicile in writing with the Commissioner of Revenue Services, stating the specific grounds upon which the request is founded provided (A) such person has filed such return, (B) at least two hundred seventy days, but no more than three years, has elapsed since the due date of such return or, if an application for extension of time to file such return has been granted, the extended due date of such return, (C) such person has not been notified, in writing, by said commissioner that a written agreement of compromise with the taxing authorities of another jurisdiction, under section 12-395a, is being negotiated, and (D) the commissioner has not previously determined whether the decedent died a resident of this state. Not later than one hundred eighty days following receipt of such request for determination, the commissioner shall determine whether such decedent died a resident or a nonresident of this state. If the commissioner commences negotiations over a written agreement of compromise with the taxing authorities of another jurisdiction after a request for determination of domicile is filed, the one-hundred-eighty-day period shall be tolled for the duration of such negotiations. When, before the expiration of such one-hundred-eighty-day period, both the commissioner and the person required to make and file a tax return under this chapter have consented in writing to the making of such determination after such time, the determination may be made at any time prior to the expiration of the period agreed upon. The period so agreed upon may be extended by subsequent agreements in writing made before the expiration of the period previously agreed upon. The commissioner shall mail notice of his proposed determination to the person required to make and file a tax return under this chapter. Such notice shall set forth briefly the commissioner's findings of fact and the basis of such proposed determination. Sixty days after the date on which it is mailed, a notice of proposed determination shall constitute a final determination unless the person required to make and file a tax return under this chapter has filed, as provided in subdivision (3) of this subsection, a written protest with the Commissioner of Revenue Services.

(3) On or before the sixtieth day after mailing of the proposed determination, the person required to make and file a tax return under this chapter may file with the commissioner a written protest against the proposed determination in which such person shall set forth the grounds on which the protest is based. If such a protest is filed, the commissioner shall reconsider the proposed determination and, if the person required to make and file a tax return under this chapter has so requested, may grant or deny such person or the authorized representatives of such person an oral hearing.

(4) Notice of the commissioner's determination shall be mailed to the person required to make and file a tax return under this chapter and such notice shall set forth briefly the commissioner's findings of fact and the basis of decision in each case decided adversely to such person.

(5) The action of the commissioner on a written protest shall be final upon the expiration of one month from the date on which he mails notice of his action to the person required to make and file a tax return under this chapter unless within such period such person seeks review of the commissioner's determination pursuant to subsection (b) of section 12-395.

(6) Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to relieve any person filing a request for determination of domicile of the obligation to pay the correct amount of tax on or before the due date of the tax.

(i) The tax calculated pursuant to the provisions of this section shall be reduced in an amount equal to half of the amount invested by a decedent in a private investment fund or fund of funds pursuant to subdivision (43) of section 32-39, provided (1) any such reduction shall not exceed five million dollars for any such decedent, (2) any such amount invested by the decedent shall have been invested in such fund or fund of funds for ten years or more, and (3) the aggregate amount of all taxes reduced under this subsection shall not exceed thirty million dollars.

Sec. 39. Section 12-642 of the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective January 1, 2018, and applicable to gifts made on or after January 1, 2018):

(a) (1) With respect to calendar years commencing prior to January 1, 2001, the tax imposed by section 12-640 for the calendar year shall be at a rate of the taxable gifts made by the donor during the calendar year set forth in the following schedule:

(a) (1) For the estates of decedents dying prior to July 1, 2009, the tax imposed by this chapter shall become due at the date of the taxable transfer and shall become payable, and shall be paid, without assessment, notice or demand, to the Commissioner of Revenue Services at the expiration of nine months from the date of death. [, and for] For the estates of decedents dying on or after July 1, 2009, the tax imposed by this chapter shall become due at the date of the taxable transfer and shall become payable and shall be paid, without assessment, notice or demand, to the commissioner at the expiration of six months from the date of death. Executors, administrators, trustees, grantees, donees, beneficiaries and surviving joint owners shall be liable for the tax and for any interest or penalty thereon until it is paid, notwithstanding any provision of chapter 802b, except that no executor, administrator, trustee, grantee, donee, beneficiary or surviving joint owner shall be liable for a greater sum than the value of the property actually received by him or her. If the amount of tax reported to be due on the return is not paid, for the estates of decedents dying prior to July 1, 2009, within such nine months, or for the estates of decedents dying on or after July 1, 2009, within such six months, there shall be imposed a penalty equal to ten per cent of such amount due and unpaid, or fifty dollars, whichever is greater. Such amount shall bear interest at the rate of one per cent per month or fraction thereof from the due date of such tax until the date of payment. Subject to the provisions of section 12-3a, the commissioner may waive all or part of the penalties provided under this chapter when it is proven to the commissioner's satisfaction that the failure to pay any tax was due to reasonable cause and was not intentional or due to neglect.

(2) The Commissioner of Revenue Services may, for reasonable cause shown, extend the time for payment. The commissioner may require the filing of a tentative return and the payment of the tax reported to be due thereon in connection with such extension. Any additional tax which may be found to be due on the filing of a return as allowed by such extension shall bear interest at the rate of one per cent per month or fraction thereof from the original due date of such tax to the date of actual payment.

(3) (A) Whenever there is [an] a claimed overpayment of the tax imposed by this chapter, the Commissioner of Revenue Services shall return to the fiduciary or transferee the overpayment which shall bear interest at the rate of two-thirds of one per cent per month or fraction thereof, such interest commencing, for the estates of decedents dying prior to July 1, 2009, from the expiration of nine months after the death of the transferor or date of payment, whichever is later, or, for the estates of decedents dying on or after July 1, 2009, from the expiration of six months after the death of the transferor or date of payment, whichever is later, as provided in subparagraphs (B) and (C) of this subdivision.

(B) In case of such overpayment pursuant to a tax return, no interest shall be allowed or paid under this subdivision on such overpayment for any month or fraction thereof prior to (i) the ninety-first day after the last day prescribed for filing the tax return associated with such overpayment, determined without regard to any extension of time for filing, or (ii) the ninety-first day after the date such return was filed, whichever is later.

(C) In case of such overpayment pursuant to an amended tax return, no interest shall be allowed or paid under this subdivision on such overpayment for any month or fraction thereof prior to the ninety-first day after the date such amended tax return was filed.

(b) (1) The tax imposed by this chapter shall be reported on a tax return which shall be filed on or before the date fixed for paying the tax, determined without regard to any extension of time for paying the tax. The commissioner shall design a form of return and forms for such additional statements or schedules as the commissioner may require to be filed. Such forms shall provide for the setting forth of such facts as the commissioner deems necessary for the proper enforcement of this chapter. The commissioner shall [cause a supply of such forms to be printed and shall] furnish appropriate [blank] forms to each taxpayer upon application or otherwise as the commissioner deems necessary. Failure to receive a form shall not relieve any person from the obligation to file a return under the provisions of this chapter. In any case in which the commissioner believes that it would be advantageous to him or her in the administration of the tax imposed by this chapter, the commissioner may require that a true copy of the federal estate tax return made to the Internal Revenue Service be provided.

(2) Any tax return or other document, including any amended tax return under section 12-398, that is required to be filed under this chapter shall be filed, and shall be treated as filed, only if filed with [both] (A) the Commissioner of Revenue Services, if required under subdivision (3) of this subsection, and (B) (i) the court of probate for the district within which the decedent resided at the date of his or her death or, (ii) if the decedent died a nonresident of this state, in the court of probate for the district within which real estate or tangible personal property of the decedent is situated. The return shall contain a statement, to be signed under penalty of false statement by the person who is required to make and file the return under this chapter, that the return has been filed with [both] the Commissioner of Revenue Services, if required under subdivision (3) of this subsection, and the appropriate court of probate.

(3) (A) A tax return shall be filed, in the case of every decedent who died prior to January 1, 2005, and at the time of death was (i) a resident of this state, or (ii) a nonresident of this state whose gross estate includes any real property situated in this state or tangible personal property having an actual situs in this state, whenever the personal representative of the estate is required by the laws of the United States to file a federal estate tax return.

(B) A tax return shall be filed, in the case of every decedent who dies on or after January 1, 2005, but prior to January 1, 2010, and at the time of death was (i) a resident of this state, or (ii) a nonresident of this state whose gross estate includes any real property situated in this state or tangible personal property having an actual situs in this state. If the decedent's Connecticut taxable estate is over two million dollars, such tax return shall be filed with the Commissioner of Revenue Services and a copy of such return shall be filed with the court of probate for the district within which the decedent resided at the date of his or her death or, if the decedent died a nonresident of this state, the court of probate for the district within which such real property or tangible personal property is situated. If the decedent's Connecticut taxable estate is two million dollars or less, such return shall be filed with the court of probate for the district within which the decedent resided at the date of his or her death or, if the decedent died a nonresident of this state, the court of probate for the district within which such real property or tangible personal property is situated, and no such return shall be filed with the Commissioner of Revenue Services. The judge of probate for the district in which such return is filed shall review each such return and shall issue a written opinion to the estate representative in each case in which the judge determines that the estate is not subject to tax under this chapter.

(e) The State Bond Commission shall not adopt any resolution which authorizes the issuance of any bonds, notes or other evidences of indebtedness unless such resolution has attached to it a certification by the Treasurer that the amount of such authorization will not cause the total amount of indebtedness calculated in accordance with this section to exceed the limit for indebtedness set forth in this section.
