Connecticut kicked off the 19th installment of its sales tax holiday on Sunday, Aug. 18. As usual, Sales Tax Free Week is timed to coincide with back-to-school shopping.
Items rung up for less than $100 are spared the state’s 6.35 percent sales tax, with many retailers marking down items below that threshold to qualify them for the tax break. There is no cap on the number of qualifying items one can purchase on any single transaction.
