The Louisiana Taxpayer Access Point (LaTAP) is getting a major renovation.

The LaTAP upgrade will be available soon with new and improved account management options. To prepare for the upgrade, the system will be unavailable beginning Monday, October 27, 2014, at 5:00 p.m. The renovated LaTAP will be available Wednesday, November 5, 2014.

You will not be required to create a new user ID. Your current user ID and password will allow you to log into the upgraded LaTAP. But previously saved payment source information will not be retained when the new LaTAP system goes online. You will have to re-enter your bank account payment information for each tax type.

Please make any necessary adjustments to your payment and return schedule to account for LaTAP down time.

We regret any inconvenience. If you have any questions, please call 855-307-3893, option 3.

IFTA and withholding returns and remittances submitted through LaTAP for the September 2014 tax period will be considered timely if they are submitted no later than November 17, 2014. No penalties or late fees will be assessed if returns and remittances are submitted by November 17. This extension is due to the unavailability of LaTAP for a system upgrade from October 27 through November 4, which includes the usual filing date of October 31.
