BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana’s state sales tax won’t be charged on most purchases Friday and Saturday. The one-time sales tax holiday is aimed to help people struggling with the coronavirus pandemic and recovering from hurricanes Laura and Delta. Lawmakers passed the two-day sales tax holiday legislation by Republican House Speaker Clay Schexnayder last month, and Gov. John Bel Edwards agreed. The revenue department says the sales tax holiday exempts the first $2,500 of most purchases from Louisiana’s 4.45% state sales tax, including both in-store and online transactions. The holiday doesn’t cover buying a vehicle. And it doesn’t apply to local sales taxes.
