Tax season is almost upon us and you can file your Louisiana state income tax starting on Monday, January 28.
The Louisiana Department of Revenue said, “the date coincides with the date the IRS begins accepting 2018 federal income tax returns.”
If you choose to use Louisiana Revenue, you will be able to complete these tasks:
- File returns and pay taxes electronically
- Check the status of individual income tax refunds
- Amend current and prior-year tax returns
- Request a filing extension
According to the Louisiana Department of Revenue, “on January 28, taxpayers can begin submitting returns to the state through commercially available tax preparation software; or they can download paper tax forms from the LDR website at www.revenue.louisiana.gov/Forms.”
If you file online there is a good chance you will receive your tax refunds two months before you would if you file paper returns.
Individuals have until May 15, 2019 to complete their 2018 Louisiana Individual Income Tax returns.
