Wouldn’t it be great if there was a weekend where sales tax didn’t exist? Well it turns out there is, but only in Louisiana and only for anything hunting related. According to Peter J. Reilly at Forbes, from September 6 to 8 is the Annual Louisiana Second Amendment Weekend Sales Tax Holiday. However, this is not a sales tax free weekend on everything.
According to Reilly this tax free weekend purposefully corresponds with the commencement of hunting season and only includes items used in the pursuit of hunting. Such as, rifles, pistols, revolvers, or other handguns which may be legally sold or purchased in Louisiana. The amendment also extends beyond weaponry and includes all things hunting related.
As long as it is hunting related you can get anything from binoculars to off-road vehicles all tax free. However, if you want to buy binoculars because you are a member of the Audubon Society and just want to watch the birds then you will be taxed. In short, if you love to hunt and hate taxes then Louisiana is where you want to be in-between September 6th to 8th.
