Here we report the discovery and classification of SN2020zct (ZTF20acezhcf) as a SN Iax[02cx-like].

The Recommender Engine For Intelligent Transient Tracking (REFITT) collaboration reports the discovery of SN 2020zct (ZTF20acezhcf) from the Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF; Bellm et al. 2019) processed through the Antares data broker (Narayan et al. 2018).

Spectroscopy of SN 2020zct was obtained using SOAR AEON observations with the Goodman Spectrograph (Clemens et al. 2004). It was classified as a SN Iax[02cx-like] using SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007) and DASH (Muthukrishna et al. 2019) with an associated redshift of 0.14.
