Dept. of Revenue encourages electronic filing with Louisiana File Online

The Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) encourages all taxpayers to file electronically their tax returns for the 2009 tax year.

Louisiana File Online is the states single-source location for all individual and business tax filing requirements


Visit to take advantage of this fast, easy-to-use, absolutely free public resource.

Among its many advantages, Louisiana File Online allows taxpayers to:

1. File returns and pay taxes electronically

2. Check the status of individual income tax refunds

3. Amend tax returns

4. View business tax information for the current and previous years

Beginning with the 2009 Louisiana Resident Individual Income Tax Return, due no later than May 15, 2010, LDR will cease to distribute paper returns through the mail. For the 2008 filing year, LDR distributed 180,000 pre-printed returns to taxpayers on file at a cost of $250,000. We received back fewer than 40,000 of them. The cost of postage is another real savings advantage from electronic filing.

The filing deadline for 2009 individual state income tax returns is May 15, 2010.
