Shoppers can save big bucks on tax free weekend
The parish council voted unanimously at its July 2, meeting to approve the ordinance authorizing the tax-free days.
The holiday provides an exemption, state and parish wide, from sales tax on the first $2,500 of the price of most consumer goods for personal use. Thatís a savings of 9 percent which can add up on big ticket items like jewelry and TVís -- a $45 savings for every $500.
In addition to the specific exclusions in the Act for vehicles and meals, the state sales tax holiday will not apply to purchases of taxable services (hotel occupancy; amusement, recreational, and athletic admissions; repairs to tangible personal property; laundry services; vehicle parking; the furnishing of cold storage space; printing services; and telecommunication services) or to leases or rentals of tangible personal property.
In order to receive the tax exemption, the customer must do one of the following:
• Must purchase and accept delivery of eligible property;
• Must place property on layaway;
• Must pay for and acquire possession of property that was previously placed on layaway; or
• Must place and pay for an order for immediate shipment, even if delivery must be delayed. However, the delay in delivery must not be at the request of the purchaser.
