Department of Revenue’s Parish E-File simplifies sales taxes

The following is a press release from the Louisiana Department of Revenue.

BATON ROUGE, LA – Businesses that collect and remit sales taxes to state and local governments can reduce the time, effort, and paperwork involved by using Parish E-File, a free public service from the Louisiana Department of Revenue.

Parish E-File is a web application that provides a secure, convenient method of filing multiple state and parish sales and use tax returns throughout Louisiana.  There are no fees associated with its use.

Businesses that operate multiple locations throughout the state find Parish E-File especially useful.  Instead of filing separate paper sales and use tax returns with each local taxing authority, the entire process can be handled from one central location online.

Parish E-File allows business to remit sales tax collections as well.

In 2009, Parish E-File logged an average of 36,550 sales and use tax returns per month and collected more than $800 million in revenues for state and local governments.
