Save money shopping in St. Charles Parish with tax free weekend
The sales tax holiday will take place on Aug. 1-2 and St. Charles is the only parish in the area that will suspend all sales tax. The amount of the taxes that will be waived include 2 percent from the parish, 3 percent from the School Board and 4 percent from the state for a total of 9 percent.
The sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday and continues through midnight on Saturday. School supplies, hurricane protection items, furniture and even alcohol and tobacco products are just a few of the many items that will be available tax free.
That means residents can save as much as $225 in sales tax on each item up to $2,500 purchased.
Historically, the tax holiday provides a major boost to local retailers because most residents choose to shop inside the parish.
Furniture, appliances and other luxury items usually sell well during the tax-free weekend. However, residents are urged to use the holiday to save on the purchases of back-to-school supplies and hurricane preparedness items.
Items not eligible for the tax exemption include vehicles subject to license and title, most meals, laundry services and purchases of taxable services such as hotel rooms and tickets to athletic events.
