Another state sales tax holiday begins Sunday
Most clothing and footwear items priced under $100 will be exempt from the Connecticut sales and use tax from Sunday through Saturday, Aug. 27, Gov. Ned Lamont announced Wednesday.
The sales tax holiday is the second one held this calendar year, marking the first time the state has held two the same year. The previous tax-free week took place in April.
During the sales tax holiday, the tax exemption will apply to each eligible item costing under $100 regardless of how many such items are recorded on the same invoice.
“This is the second week-long sales tax holiday the state is holding this year, and it is scheduled right at back-to-school season to help families stretch their dollar a little bit more during this busy time, while also giving businesses an extra boost to their bottom line,” Lamont said in a statement. “This is also an excellent opportunity to shop at some of our state’s locally owned retailers and support the many great small businesses we have in Connecticut.”
Many retailers offer additional clothing and footwear discounts during the tax-free week. For more information, including a list of individual items exempt or taxable, visit portal.ct.gov/DRS/Sales-Tax/Sales-Tax-Free-Week.
