2009 Louisiana Sales Tax Holiday – August 7 & 8

The annual Louisiana Sales Tax Holiday provides an exemption from state sales tax on the first $2,500 of the purchase price of most individual items of tangible personal property for non-business use. The state sales tax is payable on the portion of the purchase price of any individual item in excess of $2,500.

The holiday will apply to the four-percent state sales tax, but will not apply to sales taxes levied by parishes, municipalities, school boards, and other political subdivisions of the state.

The 2009 Louisiana Sales Tax Holiday will be from 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 7, through 12 midnight on Saturday, August 8. These dates are set by the enabling legislation as the first consecutive Friday and Saturday of August annually.
