Consumers will be spending a little bit less on some of their purchases this week. Connecticut’s annual tax-free week began Sunday, August 17, and will run through Saturday, meaning most clothing and footwear items under $300 will be exempt from the state sales tax.

Governor Dannel Malloy kicked off the tax holiday at a clothing store in Berlin.

The Governor said, “Having this week-long sales tax holiday not only makes back-to-school shopping just a little bit easier, but also helps retailers boost their bottom line. Many stores also plan sales and discounts to coincide with this week, which allows families to stretch their hard-earned money a little further. 

For a complete list of items that are included and exempt from tax-free week, visit the Connecticut Department of Revenue Services website.
