Sunday, August 19
Monday, August 20
Tuesday, August 21
Wednesday, August 22
Thursday, August 23
Friday, August 24
Saturday, August 25
On these dates, you can purchase these items free of Connecticut state sales tax:
– Clothing and footwear priced at $100 or less per item. Excludes clothing accessories and protective or athletic clothing.
Many stores will be having special back to school sales on eligible items in conjunction with the sales tax holiday. Walmart, Target, Belk, Neiman Marcus, Lord & Taylor, Famous Footwear, Dillard’s, Kmart, Sears, JCPenney, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Marshalls have frequent tax free weekend sales and back to school tax holiday promotions.
Be sure to take advantage of the Connecticut Sales Tax Holiday and back-to-school tax free weekend: August 19-25, 2018.
