Tax Free Shopping


Not to be confused with “duty free” shops at international departure terminals in airports, “Louisiana Tax Free Shopping” is available at well known retail stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Best Buy, Macy’s, J.C. Penney, Gucci, The Gap, Sears, Wal-Mart, Sam’s Club, Coach, etc. Tax Free stores also include manufacturer outlets, other department stores, jewelry stores, art and antique stores, computers and electrical appliances, as well as hundreds of smaller specialty shops throughout the state. Most of the major shopping centers in the New Orleans and Baton Rouge area are tax-free zones. The sales tax refund is provided on tangible items purchased at tax-free stores and permanently removed from the United States. There is no refund for sales taxes paid for personal services, such as: hotels, restaurants, entertainment and transportation. Any person traveling on a foreign passport with a current U.S. visa and round-trip international transportation ticket of less than 90 days duration is eligible for a refund of sales taxes.
