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.

concerning the collection and remittance of sales taxes, please refer to the
