- Sales Tax Rate Changes
- Nov 20, 2013 | Gail Cole
Two local sales and use tax rate changes took effect in Louisiana on October 1, 2013.
Effective October 1, 2013, the sales and use tax rate in Evangeline Parish increased by 2%, bringing the combined rate of state and local sales tax in Rural Ward Number 2 to 9%.
The rate change is due to the application of the 2% police jury sales and use tax to rural Ward Number 2, the only rural sales area in Evangeline Parish not subject to the 2% police jury sales and use tax prior to October 1, 2013.
Evangeline Parish includes the following jurisdictions all of which now have a combined local sales and use tax rate of 5% and a total state and local rate of 9%:
- Ville Platte,
- Pine Prairie,
- Turkey Creek, and
- All Rural areas.
