OLR Report 2015-R-0104 provides a list of goods and services that are exempt from the state sales and use tax.
The state imposes sales and use taxes on retail sales of tangible personal property and services. It imposes a 6.35% tax, with some exceptions, on the retail sales of tangible personal property purchased (1) in Connecticut (i.e., sales tax) or (2) outside Connecticut for use here (i.e., use tax). These taxes apply to any item of tangible personal property, unless the law expressly exempts it.
The state similarly imposes a 6.35% tax, with some exceptions, on services provided by companies doing business in the state, regardless of whether they are located here. Unlike the statutes imposing the sales and use tax on tangible personal property, those imposing the tax on services specify the types of services subject to the tax and, within each type, the ones exempted from it.
