Governor Jindal Urges Hunters, Campers to Take Advantage of 2013 Second Amendment Tax Holiday

BATON ROUGE – Today, Governor Bobby Jindal urged hunters and campers to take advantage of the 2013 Louisiana Second Amendment Weekend Sales Tax Holiday that runs Friday, September 6 through Sunday, September 8.
 
Governor Jindal said, "“Louisiana is known as the Sportsman’s Paradise across the nation, and this weekend has become an anticipated time for families across our state to buy the equipment they need for a great hunting and camping season. This weekend outdoorsmen can take advantage of tax savings for outdoor supplies like camouflage clothing, ammunition and off-road vehicles. These purchases will bring more customers to our local hunting and sporting stores, further supporting our businesses and Louisiana’s thriving economy.”
 
A wide range of supplies is eligible for exemption from all state and local sales taxes. Eligible items include:
  • 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 which may be legally driven on highways.
Governor Bobby Jindal signed a bill into law during the 2009 legislative session authorizing an annual “sales tax holiday” for the purchase of firearms, ammunition and hunting supplies.
