Dept. of Revenue encourages electronic filing with Louisiana File Online

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

BATON ROUGE – 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 state's single-source location for all individual and business tax filing requirements.  Visit www.fileonline.revenue.louisiana.gov to take advantage of this fast, easy-to-use, absolutely free public resource.

"Tens of thousands of taxpayers used Louisiana File Online for the previous filing season," said Secretary of Revenue Cynthia Bridges.  "This year, we want everyone to enjoy the speed and convenience of this public service from the Department of Revenue."

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

  • File returns and pay taxes electronically
  • Check the status of individual income tax refunds
  • Amend tax returns
  • 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.

Taxpayers who wish to file paper returns can find them at public libraries and at LDR offices throughout the state.

Any Louisiana tax return is available for download from the Tax Forms page at revenue.louisiana.gov.

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

    Patient safety is paramount in hospital settings and traditionally, it has taken one-to-one care 24/7 for some of the most at-risk patients. KPLC's Britney Glaser shows how a new video monitoring system is keeping patients safe and freeing up nursing staff for other duties.
