Connecticut

The Connecticut (CT) state sales tax rate is currently 6.35%.

Connecticut raised the sales and use tax rate to 6.35% in July, 2011. During 2011 legislation, Connecticut passed the enactment of what is commonly called an “Amazon law” requiring e-commerce businesses who have marketing affiliates located within the state to collect and remit sales tax on items shipped to Connecticut residents.

Amazon.com is building a fulfillment center in Connecticut. This physical presence, or nexus, ensures a sales tax obligation for Amazon and many sellers participating in Amazon’s Seller Central and Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA) programs.
