Welcome to Taxanecticut

Starting this Friday, July 1, the Connecticut state sales tax will increase from 6 percent to 6.35 percent. In addition, clothing and shoes costing under $50, yoga classes, grooming for your pet, and spa visits will no longer be exempted from tax.

Plus the prices are going up for liquor and tobacco. You could end up shelling out an extra 40 cents for a pack of smokes.  And the alcohol prices will be increased by 20 percent.

But Gov. Dannel P. Malloy‘s tax package reaches further. Cosmetic medical procedures are also subject to tax. If there is any good news about this taxing deal, it’s this — the state decided not to mess with the Tax-free week which will be held from August 21 to August 27.

If you think us Connecticuters are taxed enough, you may be right.  Click here to take survey
