Frequently Asked Questions
I am a state agency and have purchased items from a remote retailer. Do I owe consumer use tax?
Under the provisions of R.S. 47:301(8)(c)(i), this state, any parish, city and parish, municipality, district, or other political subdivision thereof, or any agency, board, commission, or instrumentality of this state or its political subdivisions are not subject to the sales and use tax levied by any political subdivisions.
