Louisiana Extensions 3/12/2013)

Wednesday, March 13, 2013   (0 Comments)
 

We have received numerous inquiries concerning the requirements for filing Louisiana individual extensions of time to file for the 2012 tax year.

There are no paper forms available for filing Louisiana Individual and Corporation income tax return (extensions).

LDR’s authority for mandating the electronic filing of extensions is per Administrative Regulations LAC 61:III:2501 and LAC 61:III2503.

There are three alternatives available to file Louisiana extensions (http://www.revenue.louisiana.gov/sections/faq/default.aspx?type=GEN&cat=PER#faq-91):

The three options for requesting an extension are as follows:

  1. Filing an extension request electronically via the Louisiana Department of Revenue’s Individual and Corporation Online Tax Filing Application (https://esweb.revenue.louisiana.gov/OnlineTaxExtensions/);
  2. Filing an extension request electronically via LDR’s IVR phone system by calling 225.922.3270 or 888.829.3071. For an extension request, select option #3, and then select option #1. Taxpayers will need the social security number of the primary account holder to request the extension; or
  3. Submitting a state extension to LDR using your tax preparation software.

Please note the extension does not allow an extension of time to pay the tax due. Payments received after the return due date will be charged interest and late payment penalty. To avoid interest and penalty assessments, the estimated taxes due should be paid before the original due date.

The electronic payment voucher (Form R2868-V) for individual extension payments is located at: http://www.revenue.louisiana.gov/forms/taxforms/2868V(1_13)F.pdf

The electronic payment voucher (Form CIFT-620EXT-V) for corporation extension payments is located at: http://www.revenue.louisiana.gov/forms/taxforms/CIFT620EXT-V(1_13)F.pdf

The Louisiana Department of Revenue’s Individual and Corporation Online Tax Filing Application requires you to enter the taxpayer’s identification number, name, and email address for confirmation notification. In addition, there will be a pop up screen with the confirmation number and taxpayer name which you may print out for your files. There will also be a link to generate a payment voucher and/or estimated tax voucher.
