Frequently Asked Questions
Do all vendors need a Louisiana Sales Tax Account Number?
All retailers participating in the special event must have a Louisiana sales tax account. If you already have a Louisiana sales tax account you may report sales made at fairs, festivals, and other special events on your regular Sales tax return (R-1029).
If you are opening a new business, and you regularly do business in Louisiana, you are encouraged to register for a sales tax account through LaTAP..
If you are an out of state vendor or one who does not regularly do business in Louisiana, you may register your casual sales tax account by filling out form R-16019 CR1. In Part 2 of the form, Check Box “C/other”, and specify that you are a vendor at fairs or festivals, write in “casual filer”.
Your Louisiana Revenue Account Number will be mailed to you within 4-6 weeks.
If you have questions about the application, contact LDR at 855-307-3893.
