How can I register with the Louisiana Department of Revenue if I sell items at special events?
All taxpayers, whether they are Louisiana residents or not, must register with the Louisiana Department of Revenue for each state tax type that they will collect or for any state tax that they are required to pay. All retailers participating in a special event must have a Louisiana sales tax account or one will be provided at the event by our sales tax agents.
You may download the Application for Louisiana Revenue Account Number (Form R-16019 ) from the LDR website. Select “Sales Tax” under “Tax Type” on Form R-16019. On line 18 of the form, “Description of business,” indicate that the business is for a special event.
Once this application is complete, you can:
- E-mail the application to firstname.lastname@example.org; or
- Fax the Application to 225-923-4066 - Attention Special Events
