Could a Nonresident Who Receives Less Than $600 in Connecticut Lottery Winnings Be Subject to Connecticut Income Tax?

Yes. For example, assume two nonresidents purchase 20 Connecticut Lottery ticket for $1.00 apiece (with each contributing an equal amount of the ticket price), and one of the tickets wins $1,000. Even though each winner will receive $500, each will be subject to Connecticut income tax on that amount because the winnings are reportable Connecticut Lottery winnings. (The amount paid to a winner or winners is $600 or more, and at least 300 times the amount of the wager.) 8. Could a Nonresident Who Receives $600 or More in Connecticut Lottery Winnings During a Taxable Year Not Be Subject to Connecticut Income Tax? Yes. For example, assume a nonresident purchases Connecticut Lottery tickets regularly, and, on two occasions, one of the tickets wins $500. Even though the aggregate amount paid to the winner may have been $600 or more, in no instance were reportable Connecticut Lottery winnings paid to the winner. Therefore, the winner will not be subject to Connecticut income tax on the amount
