Get ready, Louisiana.

Starting Friday (April 1), things that were previously tax free at the state level have temporarily lost their exemptions. That means for the next few months, consumers will pay 5 percent more than they previously did for items like Girl Scout cookies, newspapers, Jazzfest tickets, LSU football tickets, admissions to the zoo, aquarium or planetarium. After three months, part of the exemptions are restored, so the tax increase will go down to 3 percent.

CORRECTION: The first item in the chart below should say that purchases at race tracks are affected by the tax, not betting at race tracks.
