With school less than two weeks away for some students, I want to remind you to take advantage of the upcoming “Tax Free Week” which runs from Sunday, August 15 through Saturday, August 21.
This one-week event eliminates Connecticut’s 6.35 percent sales tax on clothing and footwear costing less than $100 per item. Since sales tax is calculated after the use of any coupons or discounts, if the final price per item is less than $100, the sale is exempt from taxes.
