If Gov. Bobby Jindal’s rewrite of Louisiana’s tax code receives enough House and Senate votes for passage, taxpayers can expect to see larger paychecks; however, they’ll also see $1.4 billion in new taxes on services.
Jindal wants to boost state sales taxes from 4 percent to 5.88 percent; nearly triple cigarette taxes from 36 cents per pack to $1.41; and assess sales taxes on a wide range of services not currently taxed, such as haircuts, cable TV and landscaping.
