Connecticut to Tax Dry Cleaning and Laundry Services

Nov 22nd, 2019

Effective January 1, 2020, Connecticut will begin taxing sales of dry cleaning services and laundry services. Tax will apply to dry cleaning services, wet cleaning services, laundering services, and specialty cleaning services for items such as fur, leather, and wedding gowns. Tax will not apply to coin-operated and other self-service laundry, supplying laundered linens and uniforms on a rental basis, or tailoring, altering, or mending services. Note that Connecticut also imposes a dry cleaning establishment surcharge that applies to 1% of the gross receipts from dry cleaning services performed at a dry cleaning establishment. dry cleaning tax
