Louisiana’s personal income tax filing deadline is Wednesday

May 14, 2019

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana’s revenue department says taxpayers who need more time to file their state personal income tax returns have to file extension requests before Wednesday’s filing deadline.

The requests can be submitted online at www.revenue.louisiana.gov/extensions .

Taxpayers who don’t seek an extension and miss the Wednesday filing deadline could face late-filing penalties and fees.

Those who receive extensions still could be subject to penalties if they don’t make their required tax payment by Wednesday. An extension gives the taxpayer more time to file the individual income tax return with the state. But tax payments received after Wednesday’s filing deadline still are subject to interest and late-payment penalties.
