Together Louisiana Codifies Tax Exemption Rule Changes

Thanks to consistent pressure from Together Louisiana and allies, industrial tax exemption reforms were codified into state rules.

Says Together Baton Rouge (part of the Together Louisiana network): "These reforms haven't gone far enough yet, but what has changed already on Louisiana's biggest corporate subsidy program is historic.

For the first time in 80 years, companies will now have to create jobs to be eligible for exemptions. And the local communities paying for the exemptions will get to decide whether they are granted."
