With the summer winding down, many of you are likely getting your families ready to go back to school. And during these tough economic times, the back-to-school bill can be especially overwhelming. This is why I am happy to remind you about tax-free week. Connecticut shoppers will have a full week to take advantage of tax breaks on clothing and footwear costing less than $300. This year’s tax-free week runs from Sunday August 16, 2009 through Saturday August 22, 2009. You can get more information on Tax Free Week by clicking here.
