Frequently Asked Questions
How do I remit severance tax payments?
All severance tax payments, as well as Oilfield Site Restoration Fee payments may be remitted electronically through LaTAP, through the LDR’s website under the “make a payment” link or by ACH Credit payment via the taxpayer’s financial institution. For more detailed information on electronic payment options, go to www.revenue.louisiana.gov/EServices and download R-20201, Louisiana Electronic Funds Transfer Guidelines.
Taxpayers whose average payments exceed $5,000 are required to pay electronically. Taxpayers whose payment amounts do not fall within the mandated thresholds may volunteer to pay electronically.
Electronic payments and filings that are filed late will be assessed a delinquent payment penalty per R.S. 47:1519 and 1520 and will be subject to penalties and interest as set forth in R.S. 47:1601 and 1602.
