The Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) will begin accepting 2016 state individual income tax returns on Monday, January 23. Additionally the state individual income tax filing deadline is Monday, May 15. LDR begins this tax season with a focus on protecting taxpayers and state government against fraud.
Over the past three years, LDR has saved taxpayers more than $50 million through its tax fraud prevention initiative, with millions more recovered through restitution. Dozens of fraud suspects have been arrested.
The enhanced security measures in place to detect and stop fraud have increased the time it takes to process tax refunds. For returns filed electronically, refund processing could take as long as 60 days in some cases. Some taxpayers filing paper returns could wait as long as 14 weeks for their refunds.
