The Louisiana Department of Revenue
Streamlined Sales Tax

McMinnville, OR, April 4, 2016 - TTR, the industry leader in providing accurate, current, supported, and easy to find sales and use tax answers, has released an enhanced version of its Uniform Sales & Use Tax Matrix for Louisiana.

Why did TTR do this?

TTR works with several state tax agencies toward the larger goal of simplifying sales and use tax answers nationally. A huge step toward this goal was to create a Uniform Tax Matrix ("UTM") and make it publicly available.

After recent changes in Louisiana's sales and use tax rules, it made sense to re-issue our Louisiana UTM and tell the world about it.

How did TTR do this?

"TTR's team compiles lists of products and services across all industries. Our research team then researches whether these products and services are subject to sales or use tax across all states. TTR also captures correct tax rates. TTR then makes all of this information available to subscribers. The Uniform Tax Matrix was an idea based on feedback from multistate companies that were struggling with Streamlined versus Non-Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Member state matrices.

The Streamlined Sales Tax Project (SSTP) is an organization that focuses on simplifying state-level tax sales and use tax. Twenty-four states are currently members of the project. Member states are required to publish tax matrices that provide tax answers for over 240 items.

As we looked into these valuable, state-issued tax matrices, there were some value added steps we felt we could take to provide the public with a single, uniform product - one that could be used across all states, not just the member states. That was the start of our Uniform Tax Matrix.

We ended up taking the hundreds of individual products and services that are listed in the Streamlined sales and use tax matrices. We put them together, added roughly an additional hundred products and services. We then researched that list everywhere!

The result is our Uniform Tax Matrix. The first ever sales and use tax matrix for all states, with the exact same products and services for uniformity. We then decided to make it available for free. We felt this would give professionals and opportunity to look at what we do for subscribers. Hopefully, people reach out for a subscription to get even more valuable content. If not though, that is okay too. We are always happy to help others." - Shon Holyfield - CEO, TTR, Inc.
