Hurricane season is right around the corner. Are you prepared?
The state is helping residents prepare with an annual hurricane tax holiday. Retailers across Louisiana are gearing up for the sales and you have a chance to save money on supplies this weekend.
A weekend I know many people look forward too where they can buy batteries, flashlights, plywood, generators, gas tanks and other hurricane preparedness items this tax-free this weekend.
The holiday, now in its 6th year and held the last weekend in May to precede the June 1st start of hurricane season. The tax free holiday starts tonight at midnight and lasts through Sunday night. The holiday exempts the first $1500 of each eligible item from the 4% state sales tax..
For a complete list of details on what is and isn't exempt this tax free weekend and storm-related items.
