LDR Waives Some Partnership Filings

February 25, 2022

The Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) has updated RIB 22-007 regarding Partnership Filings for the 2021 Tax Year. 

RIB 22-007 has been updated on page one with these footnotes: 

  1. This bulletin was amended on February 24, 2022, to add Footnote 2 below and renumber the remaining footnotes.
  2. Due to unexpected delays with the availability of electronic filing of the Form IT-565, the requirement to file Form IT-565 for partnerships with only Louisiana residents as partners is waived for the 2021 tax year. These partnerships may still apply for an account numbers based on the scenarios below or an account number will be assigned when the 2022 Form IT-565 is filed. This waiver does not apply to partnerships that have been previously filing with LDR, including composite partnerships.
