Hi from just answer. I'm PDtax. You haven't done enough.
Retaining your CT real property kills what you have in mind. Returning to the state during down time fails what is called the ' near and dear' test in these cases. Where your down time is, and where the things are that are near and dear to you, is a factor in state residence not often published, but regularly failed.
Your time spent in CT, the location of your near and dear items, both must be revisited to establish not only FL residence, but CT nonresidence. Even part time CT residence soils your tax plan.
Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
