The state’s annual sales tax-free week runs from Sunday, August 16, through Saturday, August 22.
During the Sales Tax Holiday Week, most individual items of clothing and footwear priced under $300 are exempt from Connecticut’s sales and use tax. During that week, the increased exemption replaces the standard exemption for clothing under $50. For purchases costing $300 or more, sales tax is calculated on the full cost of the item.
For more information on what is and is not eligible for the tax break visit the Department of Revenue Services web site.
