The 2006 sales tax holiday season is winding down.

Maryland_sales_tax_holiday_logo The last two late-summer events are now under way in Connecticut and Maryland. Washington, D.C., has one more after Thanksgiving, then that closes this year's tax holiday books.

But for the next few days, careful shoppers in Connecticut and Maryland can save some money.

Connecticut's sales-tax holiday began Sunday and shoppers there have through Saturday, Aug. 26., to buy tax-free clothes and shoes. The main caveat: To avoid the Nutmeg State's 6% sales levy, each item bought in the next four days must cost less than $300. Get the complete guidelines here.

Starting today, Maryland shoppers can escape the 5% sales tax on clothing and footwear priced at $100 or less. The tax-free holiday in the Old Line state lasts through Sunday, Aug. 27. The full list of tax-exempt items can be found here.

Happy tax bargain shopping!
