LDR Request for Written Notice Concerning Disaster or Emergency-Related Services Rendered by Nonresident Employees and Nonresident Businesses Due to Hurricane Ida


Pursuant to Act 358, this bulletin shall serve as an official request from the Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) to all registered businesses in the State of Louisiana who are requesting any nonresident business to perform disaster or emergency-related work relating to Hurricane Ida to provide written notice to the Department of Revenue concerning all such requests.  Act 358 of the 2017 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature provides for an exclusion from either gross income or adjusted gross income for compensation received by either a nonresident business or a nonresident employee for the performance of disaster or emergency-related work relating to critical infrastructure within the state during a declared state emergency. The exclusion applies only for income received in exchange for disaster or emergency-related work related to critical infrastructure that is performed during the declared disaster period, which begins within 10 days of the first day of the declaration or proclamation made by either the governor, the president, or appropriate local government official and ends 60 days after its conclusion, unless a longer period is subsequently authorized.

Read RIB 21-020 for full details and written request instructions.
