Annually, Connecticut offers a sales and use tax exclusion during a one-week period in August for clothing and footwear costing less than $100 per item.
This “sales tax holiday” occurs during the third Sunday in August through the following Saturday. This year, it occurs Sunday, August 21 through Saturday, August 27.
Note: Tax does not apply to the sale of an article of clothing or footwear costing less than $100 sold during the exclusion week by mail, telephone, or over the Internet.
