LDR will not apply penalties or interest to any applicable returns or payments submitted by the July 15 deadline. Taxpayers who need more time to file these returns can request an extension at Failure to request an extension before the deadline can result in late-filing penalties. An extension grants additional time to file a return only. It does not grant more time to pay any taxes due. Payments submitted after the July 15 deadline are subject to penalties and interest.


The state deadline coincides with the federal income tax deadline, which was also extended due to the pandemic.

Department of Revenue waives penalties for March and April state sales tax returns...Continue Reading


BATON ROUGE – Due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency, the Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) is waiving penalties for state sales tax returns due in April and May.


The penalty relief applies to state sales tax returns and remittances due April 20, 2020 (for the March tax period), and May 20, 2020 (for the April tax period). State sales tax returns are due on the 2oth day of the month following the applicable tax period.


LDR will waive penalties for state sales tax filers who submit their March 2020 and April 2020 returns, and remit the sales tax and any interest owed, by June 30, 2020. If a taxpayer cannot remit the sales tax and interest by June 30, they will still be eligible for penalty relief if they enter into a payment installment agreement by June 30.
