Connecticut Governor Seeks Exemption for Non-Prescription Drugs

  • Feb 5, 2014 | Gail Cole

 Connecticut governor proposes tax cuts.

Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy is seeking a sales tax exemption for non-prescription drugs. The exemption is part of a two-year, tax relief plan that is, according to the governor, "a modest, responsible way to begin reducing the tax burden on Connecticut residents." Altogether, the plan proposes close to $450 million in tax savings.

In addition to the non-prescription drug exemption, the governor is calling for the following:

  • An income tax exemption for 50% of teachers’ pensions;
  • A two-day state park fee holiday;
  • An extended angel investor tax credit; and
  • A municipal exemption for health care plans from insurance premiums tax.

An exemption for clothing costing less than $50 is already planned for 2015.
