I haven’t seen anything that clearly states that you can’t sell these things from home (although it is pretty clear that you couldn’t sell cut fruit that is covered in chocolate or caramel). Ultimately, it might be up to your local health dept official to decide, based on their interpretation of the law. Marcia, could you let us know where you’re…[Read more]

I read the information about selling online in Louisiana, but it wasn’t too simple. This is what I understand, I can sell cakes online (only of someone picks it up). I have to label that it was not produced in a commercial establishment. I can not make more than $20,000 a year.

Who can do I contact for more information about selling canned Candied jalapeno peppers in Louisiana? Does Louisiana have a cottage law for canned Candied Jalapeno peppers? Do you have to be licensed registered to sale them?

I am still fairly new to Louisiana and CFO’s and wanted to know in order to sell online or to more then one parish, do I have to have a local sales tax certificate for every parish or county? Am I able to sell online and ship to other states or do I need the same information for every state and parish or county?

David Crabill replied to the topic Section B of HB No. 1270 gross annual sales in the forum Louisiana 6 years ago
The cottage food law covers spices and seasonings, so yes, you can make those, and yes, you would be limited to less than $20,000 of sales. You need to get a sales tax certificate.
It’s worded in a confusing way, but basically, the bill language means that if you make “$20,000 or more”, then the cottage food law exemption no longer applies to…[Read more]

At the very least, you should be able to sell directly anywhere in the state. Like farmers markets, roadside stands, delivering directly to people, etc. There shouldn’t be a zone-by-zone restriction for where you can sell. Is that what you were asking?
