Last year, Louisiana re-vamped their tax code, and among the changes imposed was that medical devices went from being exempt to being taxed at a 3% rate. This change was scheduled to expire on July 1, 2018. However, on June 23, 2017, Governor John Bell Edwards signed Senate Bill 180 into law (Act No. 426). Pursuant to this bill, the exemption for medical devices was re-instated as of July 1, 2017.
