Louisiana Hurricane Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday

September 27, 2022

Louisiana residents, I have some bad news: Louisiana will not be having a Hurricane Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday or tax free weekend in 2022. The tax and budget deal passed by the legislature will end Louisiana’s state sales tax holidays until at least 2025. All purchases of emergency supplies will be subject to the normal combined state + county + city sales tax rate. In most areas, the total sales tax is between 9% and 10%.

In previous years, shoppers could purchase virtually any item for use during the upcoming hurricane season and receive a reduction of Louisiana state sales tax. Portable generators, flashlights radios, batteries, chargers, coolers, sheeting, ground anchor systems, storm shutter devices, blue ice products, carbon monoxide detectors, and fuel tanks were included.

Keep your fingers crossed and maybe (hopefully!) your legislators will reinstate the Louisiana Second Amendment Sales Tax Holiday for 2025.
