LCPA's Advocacy Team strives to provide you timely and quality information to make tax season — and year round — easier for all practitioners, and sometimes that means additional alerts to give you further clarification as needed.

We appreciate our members who raised questions regarding our 2/24/16 Tax Alert which included the topic of the Citizens Declaration Page. We heard those concerns and went straight to the Louisiana Department of Revenue for more information, and here's what we learned:

“A copy of the Citizens Declaration Page is not required with an e-filed return claiming the credit, but it may be sent as a PDF file if the practitioner would like to have the documentation on the account."

The information on LDR’s website for returns filed electronically is officially correct. We encourage members to consult LDR's website for complete details on documents required to be filed and retained when claiming the Citizens Insurance Tax Credit.

Thanks to LDR for its prompt attention to providing the clarification.

Questions about the content of this Alert should be directed to Linda Babin.
