“We recognize that the coronavirus pandemic has caused significant disruptions in the lives of Louisiana citizens,” Secretary of Revenue Kimberly Lewis Robinson said. “We believe providing more time to file and pay their taxes can help to ease the stress they might be feeling during this public health emergency.”

 

The state filing extension follows the U.S. Treasury Department’s decision to move the federal income tax deadline from April 15 to July 15.

 

The state filing extension is automatic for eligible taxes and no extension request is necessary. LDR will not apply penalties or interest to any applicable returns or payments submitted by the extended July 15 deadline. 

 

Due to a statewide stay-at-home order issued by Gov. John Bel Edwards, LDR has suspended in-person customer service to help slow the spread of COVID-19. During this public health emergency, LDR recommends all taxpayers take advantage of the online customer service options available on the department’s website, including Louisiana File Online, the state’s free tax filing portal for individual taxpayers.

Department of Revenue extends state sales tax deadline due to coronavirus public health emergency...Continue Reading

 

BATON ROUGE – Businesses have additional time to file returns due this month for sales and excise taxes collected by the Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR). The extended deadline is May 20, 2020, for applicable returns and payments that were due Friday, March 20.

 

The extension applies to sales, beer excise and wine excise tax returns and payments for the February 2020 tax period. By state law, sales and excise tax returns for any monthly tax period are generally due on the 20th day of the following month. However, LDR is extending this month’s deadline due to the public health emergency caused by the coronavirus pandemic. This is an automatic extension and no extension request is necessary.

 

LDR will waive penalties and interest for applicable returns and payments received by the extended May 20 deadline.

 

 For more information, including a full list of all taxes eligible for this relief, read Revenue Information Bulletin 20-008.
