Louisiana State Taxes

Choosing Louisiana as an RV Domicile State

Louisiana state taxes are very important when choosing an RV domicile. Other factors to consider as a full time RV family on the road should include Louisiana homeschooling laws, as well as Louisiana drivers license and Louisiana auto insurance requirements.

The nice thing about having no ties to any state is the ability to choose your RV domicile, or RV home base. You can find a state that offers the best set of options for you and your family, depending on your individual needs. Of course, not every full time RV family has the ability or option of choosing their domicile. See the following page to determine if your domicile has been chosen for you:

  • Louisiana Homeschooling Laws & Information

    Every state in the United States has different homeschooling laws and regulations. Some states are very difficult to homeschool in, some states are very easy, while most states fall somewhere in the middle. Louisiana homeschooling laws vary.

    There are two main ways for Louisiana homeschooling. Parents can register as a home school, in which case they need to be approved by the local school board. They must submit a letter of intent as well as detailed outline of each subject of their curriculum, texts used, and submit to standardized testing or teacher evaluation annually. Alternately, Louisiana homeschooling gives parents the option of registering as a private school and bypassing the other requirements.
