Annual Sales Tax Holiday this weekend in Louisiana

Families shopping for back-to-school supplies, electronics, furniture and most other retail items will save money during the 2016 Louisiana Annual Sales Tax Holiday Friday, August 5 and Saturday, August 6.

During these two days, purchases of most items of tangible personal property will be subject to only three percent state sales tax instead of the full five percent.

The sales tax exemption applies to the first $2500 of the purchase price of each eligible item when the customer: buys and accepts delivery of eligible property; places property on layaway; acquires property that was previously placed on layaway; or places an order for immediate delivery.

Local sales taxes apply to all transactions unless the local taxing authority creates its own exemption. The sales tax holiday does not apply to: vehicles subject to title and license; meals prepared for consumption on premises or to-go; and ttxable services such as hotel occupancy, laundry services, printing services, telecommunication services, the furnishing of cold storage space, leases or rentals of tangible personal property, repairs to tangible personal property, and admission to athletic, amusement, or recreational facilities or events.
