wht is it asking for CT-EITC: EIN-1?

    Hi Jessi1210,

    When going through the Earned income Tax Credit experience in Connecticut, TurboTax will prompt you to enter the employer state ID number or payer's state ID number If you have a nine (9) digit number or entering your Federal ID number, the following message will be generated:

    CT-EITC: State ID-1 State ID number must be a 10 to 13 digit number..

    If you don't have an identification number that's 10-13 digits, you must enter zero (0) at the end of your employer's or payer's identification number. This will meet Connecticut's 10 to 13 digit requirement and ensure that your return gets processed as quickly as possible.

    I hope this helps!

      People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

      1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
      2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
      3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
      4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
      5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
