Louisiana 2018 Tax Updates

Louisiana didn't have many tax changes for tax year 2018. The most notable changes were made to consumer use tax, voluntary donations, and the Credit for Taxes Paid to Other States.

For out-of-state purchases made on or after July 1, 2018, the use tax rate has been reduced from 9 percent to 8.45 percent. Also, if you overpay your tax on your Louisiana return, you may choose to donate part or all of your overpayment to the Louisiana Horse Rescue Association and the Louisiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

In addition to new limitations placed on the credit by the Louisiana Department of Revenue, the Credit for Taxes Paid to Other States may now be calculated on two worksheets instead of one. The first worksheet is required for all taxpayers who wish to claim the credit. The other is only required for taxpayers who meet certain requirements.
