In a 7-2 vote, the Louisiana Senate’s Committee on Revenue and Fiscal Affairs decided that for a three-day weekend at the beginning of September the state would eliminate its sales tax on firearms, ammunition, knives and ATVs.
But during the same meeting it decided not to have a similar tax break for school supplies purchases at the end of the summer, or hurricane safety tools for next year’s hurricane season.
So -- no sales tax on firearms, ammo, and other weapons but you must pay sales tax on school and hurricane supplies. And here I thought my native Mississippi was at the bottom. Thank God for Louisiana!!!!!!!!!!!!!
