How do I file oil and gas severance tax returns?
Oil and gas severance tax returns must be filed electronically using the Louisiana Department of Revenue Severance Application. Once you have obtained your 10-digit revenue account number, go to www.revenue.louisiana.gov/EServices/SeveranceNotice and follow the prompts to register for the Oil and Gas Severance Application. Here you will create a user-id and password that will enable you to file the monthly returns that are required by all producers, purchasers, and other persons dealing in oil or gas severed from the soil or water in Louisiana.
