Tax Free Week Kicks Off on Aug. 21

Posted on August 18, 2022


HARTFORD – Starting Sunday Aug. 21, and continuing through Aug. 27 the state’s 6.35% sales tax on clothing and footwear will be dropped for purchases that are less than $100. Jewelry, handbags, luggage, umbrellas, watches and similar items are not included.

With inflation, high gas prices and so many taxes heaped on us by the state, we could all use a break just in time for the beginning of the school year.
