Montpelier Louisiana Sales Tax Rate Change July 2012

  • Jul 20, 2012 | Susan McLain

The Village of Montpelier, Parish of St. Helena, Louisiana has issued a late notice of the implementation of a 1% sales and use tax rate “…to be levied in perpetuity with the proceeds to be used to support the general fund.”

In a recent April 21, 2012 election, the Village of Montpelier, State of Louisiana approved the 1% levy to become effective “from and after” July 1, 2012.

The Village expects an estimated $42,000 to be realized from the sales and use tax on “…the sale at retail, the use, the lease or rental, the consumption, and the storage for use or consumption, of tangible personal property and on sales of services in the Village.”

The sales tax levy information will be displayed on the Louisiana Association of Tax Administrators (LAOTA) website once the Parish makes it available.
