HARTFORD – Just in time for the beginning of the school year, 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.

There’s no doubt we could all use a break from Connecticut’s taxes! Jewelry, handbags, luggage, umbrellas, watches and similar items are not included. More information and a complete list of items that are exempt can be found here:
