Frequently Asked Questions
How can I get a copy of my tax return?
Businesses may also request a copy by completing a Tax Information Disclosure Authorization, Form R-7004. This form authorizes the one-time release of information to yourself or the appointee you list on the form. Instructions for the form can be found here.
Act 130 of the 2015 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature amended Revised Statute 47:1507 to provide for fees for searching for tax returns and other documents, authenticating records, and certifying copies of tax returns and other documents (see Louisiana Administrative Code 61:III.1701). As of July 17, 2015, the fees are as follows:
- $15.00 for a copy of any tax return or other document previously filed by the taxpayer, or authorized representative, for each year or tax period requested, regardless of whether the requested return or document is located.
- $25.00 for each certified copy of a return or other document requested.
All fees must be paid when you submit the Tax Information Disclosure Authorization, Form R-7004 by check or money order, made payable to the Department of Revenue. Cash cannot be accepted.
