Sales Tax Free Week

August 17, 2018

Get ready for back-to-school savings. Mark your calendars for Sunday, August 19 through Saturday, August 25 to save with some great exemptions.

During this week, most clothing and footwear priced below $100 will be exempt from Connecticut’s standard sales tax. In past years, with exemptions from Connecticut’s 6.35 percent sales tax, shoppers have avoided paying more than $4 million in taxes.

The Department of Revenue Services has compiled a list of eligible tax-exempt items this year. Put together your shopping list and get ready to save!
