LWC announces additional deferral for 2020 first quarter unemployment wage, tax reports


The Louisiana Workforce Commission announced Tuesday that the deadline for first quarter 2020 wage and tax reports is deferred to Tuesday, June 30 to assist employers during the coronavirus outbreak.

Wage and tax reports, as well as the 1Q 2020 unemployment tax payment, are due at the same time, according to LWC.

“The LWC is committed to helping Louisiana businesses as much we can during this statewide and national emergency,” LWC Secretary Ava Dejoie said. “While unemployment taxes provide vital funds to help workers in need, we also want to reduce the current monetary stress employers are feeling.”

DeJoie said claims related to COVID-19 will not affect employers’ unemployment insurance experience tax rate.
