Shop Tax Free in Connecticut This Week

August 21, 2012

The last of the sales tax holidays in August is happening this week in Connecticut. (There will be one more tax-free week in September, in Louisiana, but it’s for hunting supplies. Then in October Georgia and Virginia have tax-free days for buying energy-efficient products.)

Starting on August 19th and going through August 25th, you can shop tax free in Connecticut for certain  items. To be honest, Connecticut‘s tax-free shopping holiday is pretty forward–you will not pay sales tax on clothing and footwear costing less than $300 during this period.

And the list of what the state considers to be “clothing” or “footwear” is pretty broad. For example, the following items qualify:

  • aprons
  • athletic socks
  • bathing caps
  • belts
  • diapers
  • formal wear (including wedding gowns
  • hiking boots
  • rain jackets
  • scout uniforms
  • socks
  • ties
  • underwear

You can get more details on the Connecticut Department of Revenue Services website. To all my family members and friends in Connecticut, I hope you can take advantage of these deals this week.
