Louisiana ~ Multiple Taxes: Relief Available to Taxpayers Affected by Flood

The Louisiana Department of Revenue has announced that, for purposes of the taxes the agency administers, taxpayers in areas of the state affected by the 2011 spring flood are eligible for filing and payment extensions. The department will grant a 30-day filing extension for tax returns due May 15-31 on a case-by-case basis for taxpayers who: (1) evacuated as the result of a mandatory order; (2) engaged in preventative flood protection measures for homes or property located in an area projected to flood as a result of the opening of a spillway; or (3) suffered damage to a home or property as a result of flooding on a date a return was due. Taxpayers who file electronic returns should fax spring flood-related extension requests to             (225) 923-4069      . Faxed requests should include the title “2011 Flood Impact,” the name and address of the residence or business, the type of tax, the account number, and a description of flood-related effects and reasons that support the taxpayer’s inability to file a return by the deadline. Paper-filed returns requesting spring flood extensions should be written in blue or black ink and include “2011 Flood Impact” written at the top of the return on the first page.
