NOTICE: Some advertisements in this publication may state that “No sales tax” is due. This is because the retailer is located in a state that does not impose sales or use tax, and the retailer is not registered to collect Connecticut sales and use taxes. While you may not have to pay sales tax in the state where you bought the goods or services, you must pay Connecticut use tax on taxable goods or services purchased for use in Connecticut. For more information, see the Department of Revenue Services’ Informational Publication 2011(15), Q&A on the Connecticut Individual Use Tax: www.ct.gov/drs/lib/drs/publications/pubsip/2011/ip2011-15.pdf
