Second Amendment Weekend Sales Tax Holiday in September

BATON ROUGE – Guns, ammunition and other kinds of hunting gear are free from sales tax Friday, September 6, through Sunday, September 8.

The Louisiana Second Amendment Weekend Sales Tax Holiday exempts from the four percent state sales tax and all local sales taxes a wide range of supplies, including:

Shotguns, rifles, pistols, revolvers or other handguns
Ammunition intended to be fired from a gun or firearm
Accessories designed to be used for hunting
Apparel such as safety gear, camouflage, clothing, jackets, hats, gloves, mittens, face masks and thermal underwear for use while hunting
Off-road vehicles such as all-terrain vehicles designed for hunting. The exemption does not apply to golf carts, bikes, motorcycles, tractors, or motor vehicles that may be legally driven on highways.
