Hi and welcome to Just Answer!You withholding in Connecticut is based on how you filled Form CT-W4 Employee’s Withholding Certificate - http://www.ct.gov/drs/lib/drs/forms/2013withholding/ct-w4.pdfBased on your filing - your employer will follow rules outlined in Connecticut Circular CT Employer's Tax Guide - http://www.ct.gov/drs/lib/drs/publications/pubsip/2013/ip2013-1.pdfIf you provide information from your form CT-W4 - I will verify if your employer is correct or not.Regardless if your employer is correct or not - you may request additional withholding on form CT-W4 line 2. For instance - you may request $10 withholding for each pay period - and if you are paid weekly - that will be $520 withholding even otherwise - there is no withholding.
So if you filed CT-W4 form as Single with withholding code = "E" - means - your expected annual gross income is less than or equal to $14,000 and no withholding is necessary - than there should not be any withholding.However - if you selected withholding code = "D" - means - you are a nonresident of Connecticut with substantial other income - then your employer must withhold CT income taxes.
