It's back to school, and Connecticut is kicking off its annual sales tax holiday. WAMC’s Lucas Willard reports…
Beginning Sunday and ending Aug. 25, items of clothing and footwear costing less than $300 are exempt from the 6.35 percent state sales tax.
Sports equipment, specialty clothing, jewelry and accessories are not included.
The tax-free holiday covers items valued at more than $300 and discounted with sales, coupons and other promotions.
