Update mailing address for tax filing season

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

BATON ROUGE – The Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) advises all taxpayers to ensure their mailing addresses are up to date in their LDR records and with the United States Postal Service.

"One of the most common causes of delayed income tax refunds is an incorrect mailing address," said Secretary of Revenue Cynthia Bridges.  "Any refund sent to an incorrect address is returned to the Department of Revenue, resulting in a substantial delay to the taxpayer."

Taxpayers who have moved since their last tax filing should submit a change-of-address form at the post office.  In addition, they can update their addresses with the Department of Revenue at www.revenue.louisiana.gov/AddressChange.

The Department of Revenue will begin accepting 2011 individual and corporate state income tax returns on January 17, 2012.
