Effective July 1, 2015, Louisiana will suspend its exemption of steam, water, electric power, and natural gas used by businesses from the additional sales tax rate of 0.97%. This means that these utilities will be subject to tax at this rate. Currently, these utilities are exempt from all state sales taxes.

The suspension of this exemption is set to end 60 days after the final adjournment of the 2016 regular session of the Louisiana legislature. The final adjournment of the 2016 regular legislature is scheduled to happen no later than June 6, 2016. This means that the exemption is set to go back into effect by August 5, 2016.
