Firearms, ammunition and hunting gear exempt from both state and local sales tax

For the fifth consecutive year, hunters and outdoor enthusiasts across the state can participate in the Louisiana Second Amendment Sales Tax Holiday this Friday through Sunday, Sept. 6-8.

Byron Henderson, press secretary for the Louisiana Department of Revenue, said the three-day event provides an exemption from both the 4-percent state sales tax as well as all local sales taxes on individual consumer purchases of firearms, ammunition and hunting supplies.

According to the revenue department’s Web site, there is no limit on the amount of purchases that qualify for the exemption.
