State Tax Refund News


The State Department of Revenue announced that taxpayers who are receiving a refund from Louisiana will now have three ways to collect their state tax refund money this year.  

Direct deposit was the only way to receive your refund and officials say that electronic tax filers can now receive a refund by debit card or a paper check. The agency sparked an outcry when it shifted from paper checks to debit cards. Critics said that elderly people had a hard time making that switch.

The legislature passed a bill last year requiring that taxpayers be allowed to opt against debit cards. To receive a paper check, taxpayers must select that option on their paper or electronic returns.
