The Connecticut sales tax rate is currently 6.35%. Each county, city and special district in the state can add sales taxes on top of the state rate.
Sales tax rates in Connecticut are destination-based meaning the sales tax rate is based, or determined from, the shipping address. This complicates business for retailers who need to have the exact and up-to-date sales tax rate for every shipment they make.
