Louisiana Department of Revenue statement on Supreme Court’s Wayfair decision...Continue Reading

 

BATON ROUGE – The Supreme Court overruled the physical presence requirement in Quill for remote retailers, but the high court remanded the case back to the lower court for further decisions on the South Dakota law.

 

While Louisiana is in a good position having adopted a provision very similar to the South Dakota law, we are still some time away from a final decision and seeing the full impact. It should be noted that Louisiana is currently collecting sales tax from some of the nation’s largest online retailers, including Amazon, and smaller companies as well. 

 

It is far too soon for a definitive estimate of what the state will receive from online sales as a result of today’s decision, but when appropriate, we will provide updates.

 

Sales tax discount in effect for hurricane supplies May 26-27...Continue Reading

 

BATON ROUGE – Louisiana residents can buy flashlights, batteries, portable generators and other hurricane supplies with a discount on the state sales tax Saturday, May 26 and Sunday, May 27. During these two days, eligible purchases are subject to only three percent state sales tax instead of the full five percent.

 

The Louisiana Hurricane Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday takes place on the last consecutive Saturday and Sunday each May, before the June 1 start of the Atlantic hurricane season. It applies to the first $1,500 of the purchase price of each of the following items:

 

  • Any portable self-powered light source, including candles, flashlights and other articles of property designed to provide light;
  • Any portable self-powered radio, two-way radio, or weather band radio;
  • Any tarpaulin or other flexible waterproof sheeting;
  • Any ground anchor system or tie-down kit;
  • Any gas or diesel fuel tank;
  • Any package of AAA-cell, AA-cell, C-cell, D-cell, 6 volt, or 9-volt batteries, excluding automobile and boat batteries;
  • Any cell phone battery and any cell phone charger;
  • Any nonelectric food storage cooler;
  • Any portable generator used to provide light or communications or preserve food in the event of a power outage;
  • Any storm shutter device;
  • Any carbon monoxide detector; and
  • Any reusable freezer pack such as "blue ice."

 

The exemption applies to the state sales tax only. The full amount of any local sales tax is in effect unless the local taxing authority creates its own exemption.

 

The state sales tax exemption does not apply to items sold by vendors located at any airport, public lodging establishment or hotel, entertainment complex or convenience store.

 

Read Revenue Information Bulletin 18-014 for more information.

 

 

Louisiana state income tax filing extensions must be requested before the May 15 filing deadline...Continue Reading

 

BATON ROUGE – Louisiana taxpayers who need more time to file their state individual income taxes must request extensions before the May 15, 2018, filing deadline to avoid late-filing penalties.

 

An extension provides more time to prepare and file a Louisiana individual income tax return. It does not grant additional time to pay any taxes due. Tax payments received after the return due date are subject to interest and late-payment penalties.

 

Visit www.revenue.louisiana.gov/extensions to submit an extension request electronically.
