Sales Tax Free Week Is Underway!

August 19, 2019

Summer is coming to a close and kids will soon be heading back to school.

To help working families prepare – and save – Connecticut offers its annual Sales Tax Free Week.

From now through Saturday, August 24, you can save on clothing and footwear - and send your kids back to school in style! Click here for a list of exempt and non-exempt items.

In general, items priced under $100 will be exempt from the 6.35% Connecticut sales tax. Add to your savings, too, by checking your mailbox, newspapers, email and retail websites for discount coupons and sales. If an item is initially priced at more than $100, but falls below 100 after discounts are applied, you will be exempt from paying the sales tax. Happy Shopping!
