Tax Free Week

August 18, 2017

I want to inform you about CT's Tax Free Week, which runs Sunday, August 20 to Saturday, August 26. With the 2017-18 academic year starts, many Connecticut families will spend the coming weeks stocking up on new school supplies.

On average, most families spend about $700 on back-to-school shopping and since every dollar helps. The annual one-week sales and use tax exclusion eliminates the sales tax on clothing and footwear costing less than $100. To view examples of clothing and footwear that are exempt during sales tax free week, click here.

As always, if you have any questions comments or concerns, please feel free to email me or call my office at 860-240-8563.
