Annual Louisiana Second Amendment Weekend Sales Tax Holiday

BATON ROUGE, La. -- The Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) has issued rules and dates for the first-ever “Louisiana Second Amendment Weekend Sales Tax Holiday.” The sales tax holiday will take place Friday, September 4, through Sunday, September 6.

Act 453 of the Regular Session of the 2009 Louisiana Legislature provides a three-day exemption from state and local sales and use taxes on consumer purchases of firearms, ammunition, and hunting supplies. This will be an annual sales tax holiday that occurs each year on the first consecutive Friday through Sunday in September.

The state and local sales and use tax exemption applies to an individual’s purchase of firearms, ammunition and hunting supplies. The sales and use tax exemption is not available for business purchases. Consumer purchases do not include the purchase of animals for hunting.
