CONNECTICUT SALES TAX FREE WEEK Is Here!

CONNECTICUT SALES TAX FREE WEEK Is Here! (Hartford CT)

- Connecticut's annual holiday from the sales tax begins on August 19 and runs through August 25. Tax free purchases are expected to save consumers as much as $7.5 million statewide, especially on back-to-school shopping. On average, it is estimated that families will spend nearly $700 on back to school purchases this year. During this third week of August, individual items of clothing and footwear that cost less than $300 are completely exempt from state sales tax - other than sports equipment, specialty clothing, jewelry and accessories. Store sales, catalog and on-line purchases, purchases on layaway and rentals are exempt. In addition, the tax free holiday week includes items valued at more but discounted to under $300 with sales, coupons and similar merchant promotions.
