BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Louisiana residents who have yet to file and pay their 2021 state individual taxes have one more week to get their paperwork squared away. 

According to a recent news release from the Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR), the deadline to file and pay these taxes is Monday, May 16.

Typically, the easiest way to file and pay is electronically, via the state’s free web portal for individual tax filers. The web portal is called Louisiana File Online and can be accessed here

Taxpayers can also submit their returns using tax preparation software or with printed state returns, which are available here

If a taxpayer needs more time to prepare their returns, they can request a filing extension here

According to LDR, extension requests must be submitted before May 16 and a request in itself does not grant additional time to pay any taxes that are due.
