Dear Neighbor,

To put money back into Connecticut residents’ pockets, we recently passed legislation to suspend our state’s gas tax and offer free bus service through June 30. The bill also created an additional Sales Tax Free Week happening this Sunday, April 10th through Saturday, April 16th. If your kids are home on spring vacation, this is a great opportunity to save on their spring and summer wardrobe.

During this one-week sales tax holiday, retail purchases of most clothing and footwear items under $100 will be exempt from Connecticut’s sales tax.

Many retailers in Connecticut offer additional clothing and footwear discounts during Sales Tax Free Week, resulting in even more savings for shoppers.

You can learn more about Connecticut’s Sales Tax Free Week, including a list of tax-exempt items, on the Department of Revenue website:

We hope this law alleviates some of the financial pressure on consumers’ wallets, and we hope to deliver more relief this session. The legislature’s Appropriations and Finance Committees are expected to announce their state budget proposals this week. Keep an eye out for updates about what these proposals could mean for consumers like you and the tax relief they may offer.

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

As always, please feel free to reach out to us at the Capitol at 800-842-8267 or email Joseph.Gresko@cga.ct.gov. or Phil.Young@cga.ct.gov.
