SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) -

If you haven't yet filed your state income tax returns, now is the time. May 15 is the deadline to file 2013 Louisiana Individual Income Tax returns.

In a news release on Tuesday, the Louisiana Department of Revenue announced that those who need more time to prepare their returns should submit an extension request by May 15. Although extensions allow for more time to file a return, they do not allow for additional time to pay taxes that are due.

The state Department of Revenue also issued a reminder that payments made after May 15 are subject to penalties and interest.

To file for an extension, call 888-829-3071 or visit www.revenue.louisiana.gov/extensions.

To file your return electronically, visit www.revenue.louisiana.gov/fileonline.
