Notice of Mailing to Connecticut Investors With Automatic Distributions

A letter is being mailed to Connecticut residents currently taking automatic distributions from a retirement account with Capital Bank and Trust (CB&T). The letter informs investors that effective January 1, 2018, the state of Connecticut requires 6.99% state income tax withholding on all retirement distributions. The state does allow investors who qualify to opt out of state withholding. They must submit a completed Form CT-W4P (Withholding Certificate for Pension Annuity Payments). No form is required if investors choose to withhold more than the default rate of 6.99%.

If CB&T does not receive the form, we are required to withhold taxes at the 6.99% rate. The completed CT-W4P can be faxed to (888) 421-4371, Attention: CB&T Redemption.
