The 2017 Louisiana Second Amendment Weekend Sales Tax Holiday takes place Friday, September 1 through Sunday, September 3.
Act 453 of the 2009 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature enacted the “Annual Louisiana Second Amendment Weekend Holiday Act” that provides an exemption from state and local sales and use taxes on individuals’ purchases of firearms, ammunition and hunting supplies on the first Friday through Sunday each September.
Hunters get a sales tax discount when they shop for firearms and other hunting supplies during the 2017 Second Amendment Weekend Sales Tax Holiday Friday, September 1 through Sunday, September 3.
During these three days, eligible purchases are fully exempt from all local sales taxes and are subject to only three percent state sales tax instead of the full five percent.
The sales tax holiday applies to all consumer purchases of firearms, ammunition and hunting supplies. Firearms eligible for the sales tax exemption include shotguns, rifles, pistols, revolvers, or other handguns which may be legally sold or purchased in Louisiana. Ammunition intended to be fired from a gun or firearm is eligible for the sales tax exemption. Hunting supplies are eligible for the sales tax exemption only if used for and designed for hunting.
The sales tax holiday applies to a wide range of hunting supplies including guns, ammunition, hunting apparel and archery equipment.
