CT Income Taxes

For 15 years, we were CT residents. In Janyuary 2016, we moved to FL, with the intent of establishing FL residency. We did spend April until 7 September 2016 at our CT house
This will be the first time we will NOT file (owe) CT taxes. Is there any filing precautions I should be aware. Would it be prudent say, that I file a CT return, as a NON Rresident, while claiming zero CT income ??
Appreciative of all replies -dave
BTW We have made an extensive effort to establish FL tax residency status. During 2016 were in FL for 7 1/2 mths, both cars now reg in FL, reg and voted here, all banking is w/ FL institututions , passports have FL address etc.

If you moved out of CT in January 2016, you weren't a non-resident for 2016, you were a part-year resident. There is a good chance you are required to file a part-year resident return and associated schedules/worksheets (CT-1040NR/PY, CT-SI, CT-1040AW).
Whether your substantial remaining ties to CT are enough for CT to assert your domicile is still in CT (and you have to pay taxes as a resident) is a matter of CT law. Setting up residence in FL isn't necessarily enough to eliminate your domicile in CT. I hope you had good tax/legal advice when making the change.
