Tax Free Week in CT is here!


Here's a list, courtesy of NBC CT, of what's covered under "tax free" this week. Keep in mind, clothing or shoes under $99 dollars are covered but NOT all clothing. Sports uniforms are NOT covered. Neither are pot holders. Are people wearing pot holders now? Not sure we are that surprised. Click HERE for the links to complete lists of what's tax free and not tax free.
