Louisiana announced that remote sellers selling into the state are required to register with the Louisiana Sales and Use tax Commission for Remote Sellers by July 31, 2020 or 30 calendar days after meeting Louisiana’s economic nexus threshold standards. Remote sellers will begin collecting state and local sales and use tax at standard rates once Louisiana has approved the application by the remote seller.  This means that remote sellers will no longer be required to collect the single local use tax rate in Louisiana once they are approved by the state.

Louisiana’s economic nexus threshold standards are 100,000 in gross sales or 200 or more separate transactions into the state.
