Manufacturing Sales Tax Exclusion

Manufacturers located in Jefferson Parish are exempt 98% from local and state sales and use taxes until June 30, 2016, then after 99% exclusion for 24 months.

Manufacturers must obtain a manufacturer’s exemption certificate from the Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) via the submittal form R-1070 and Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office Bureau of Taxation and Revenue via the submittal of the Parish’s Application to avoid paying state and local use tax on eligible M&E purchases. Exemption certificates must be presented to vendors at the time of purchase. The LDR issued exemption is automatically renewed for up to three years, unless LDR determines that the taxpayer no longer qualifies as a manufacturer, or if the taxpayer had become delinquent in sales tax payment or filing responsibilities pursuant to R.S.47:306.
