Each year, just in time for back to school shopping, the State of CT encourages you to shop - tax free. Just a HamletHub reminder, MAKE IT A LOCAL SHOPPING SPREE!
"Sales Tax Free Week," runs from Sunday, August 18 through Saturday, August 24.
The exemption period eliminates Connecticut's 6.35 percent sales tax on all clothing and footwear costing less than $300 per item. "Sales Tax Free Week" applies to most clothing and footwear purchases that are intended for everyday use. Goods not covered under the program include items that are solely intended for use in sporting activities and accessories such as jewelry, watches, handbags, and wallets.

Be sure to spread the word to friends and neighbors about Sales Tax Free Week and remind them to shop local!
