“Tax-Free Week” 2018 – August 19 – 25

Posted on August 13, 2018 by admin


Just a reminder that “Tax-Free Week” begins on Sunday, August 19 and ends on Saturday, August 25.

Although this tax-free event has been scaled back significantly in past years, it is still worth taking advantage of this opportunity while supporting local businesses.

Tax-Free Week was first enacted in 2000, and applies to most clothing and footwear purchases intended for everyday use, including items put on layaway.

This year, shoppers will have the opportunity to purchase those items under $100 TAX-FREE with some exceptions.

For more information, consult with your local retailer, or contact the Department of Revenue Services for a list of qualifying and non-qualifying items.

As always, Rep. Sampson can be reached at rob.sampson@housegop.ct.gov or at (800) 842-1423.
