Sales Tax Certificates

Remember that if your business sells goods or services, leases or rents tangible property, or purchases tangible personal property for use or consumption in East Baton Rouge Parish, you must apply for a sales tax certificate, collect the proper taxes from customers, and remit the tax to the City-Parish Finance Department - Revenue Division. Once the Revenue Division receives your properly completed registration form, it will be processed and a sales tax certificate will be issued. The certificate gives you the authority to collect and remit sales taxes and confirms your registration as a dealer in this parish.
