If you are a shopper in the state of Louisiana then today and Saturday are your days! Most retail purchases made in Louisiana are exempt from the state’s four-percent sales tax during this two day sales tax holiday.

 

A spokesman for the state department of revenue says the state’s annual sales tax holiday started in 2007 as a way to give Louisiana residents a chance to save some money on big-ticket purchases and back-to-school shopping.

 

Shoppers will not have to pay the state sales tax Friday or Saturday for clothes, appliances and electronics. Local sales taxes still apply, unless the local taxing authority has its own exemption. 

 

The sales tax exemption does apply to a lot of things however there are some items that the state will still collect their 4%. The sales tax exemption does not apply when purchasing a car, eating at a restaurant or staying at a hotel.
