Tax holiday on most clothing is set for week of Aug. 19-25

moneyJust in time for back to school shopping, Connecticut’s sales tax-free week on most clothing and footwear runs from Sunday, Aug. 19, through Saturday, Aug. 25.

The seven-day tax holiday exempts clothing and footwear priced under $300 from the state sales tax.

The sales tax is applied to merchandise after the use of any coupons or discounts, so any coupons or discounts that bring the final price of an item under $300 benefit from the exemption.

There are restrictions.

The state Department of Revenue Services says special clothing or footwear primarily designed for athletic activity or protective use, accessories, and jewelry do not qualify.
