Tax Laws, Rules and Regulations
 
 

        “Uniform Sales Tax Code” (State legislation) governs local sales and use taxes throughout the State including St. John the Baptist Parish. Prior to July 1, 2003 local sales and use taxes in St. John the Baptist Parish were governed by various local tax ordinances. In addition, the Collector of sales and use taxes in St. John the Baptist Parish has adopted various “Administrative Rules ” designed to assure consistent and fair interpretation and application of the Uniform Sales Tax Code (UTC) and the local ordinances.
