Louisiana's Sales Tax Break This Weekend For Hurricane Prep



 

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Need a flashlight, batteries or portable generator to get stocked for hurricane season?

Louisiana residents will get a partial sales tax break this Saturday and Sunday when they're buying hurricane-readiness supplies.

During the two-day period, eligible purchases will be subject to 3 percent state sales tax instead of the full 5 percent regularly charged on such items. Local sales taxes will be charged, unless the municipal taxing authority also offers a similar tax exemption.

The sales tax break applies to the first $1,500 of the purchase price of candles, flashlights, portable light sources, two-way radios, weather radios, waterproof sheeting, gas or diesel fuel tanks, most battery types, cell phone chargers, food storage coolers, portable generators and storm shutter devices.
