The 2008 Louisiana State Individual Income Tax filing deadline is Friday, May 15, 2009.
May 15 is also the deadline for requesting a state extension to file the 2008 individual income tax return.
If you need additional time to file your 2008 Louisiana individual income tax return, you will need to either request a specific state individual income tax filing extension OR submit a paper copy of your Federal extension, Form 4868.
Regardless of which option is used, all extension requests must be made on or before the tax return's due date, May 15th for calendar year filers, and the 15th day of the fifth month following the close of the taxable year for fiscal year filers.
