Connecticut raised the sales and use tax rate to 6.35% in July, 2011.

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.
