The 2010 Louisiana Annual Sales Tax Holiday takes place Friday, August 6, and Saturday, August 7.
The 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 applies only to the 4 percent state sales tax. Local sales taxes still apply.
