Tax Changes for Louisiana Churches

During the recent legislative session, Louisiana lawmakers made changes to tax laws that could affect your church and Association. After consulting with a sales tax attorney, our convention attorney and CPA, we have prepared an interpretation to assist you in applying these changes.

Note: These changes are effective immediately – HOWEVER – a second special legislative session has been called for June during which they will be re-evaluating exemptions for non-profits. We will update you as details emerge.

Update: House Bill No. 51 has been passed in the House, and now heads to the Senate.  The bill will reinstate many of the sales/use tax exemptions for nonprofits. However, the exemptions would only apply effective July 1, 2016, meaning that nonprofits would have been required to collect sales/use tax between April and June. Get more info here
