Department of Revenue accepting resubmission of 2010 filing extensions through August 15, 2011

July 14, 2011

BATON ROUGE – August 15, 2011, is the deadline for all filing extension requests related to 2010 Louisiana individual income tax and 2010 Louisiana Corporation Income and Franchise tax returns that were returned due to the failure to include a Louisiana tax account number, the Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) announced Wednesday.

LDR requires a Louisiana tax account number on all paper filing extensions submitted via state form CIFT-620EXT or IRS Form 7004. Extensions cannot be processed without the account numbers.

LDR will waive delinquent filing penalties for 2010 filing extension resubmissions that meet the August 15 deadline. Those that fail to meet the deadline will be subject to delinquent filing penalties.

The resubmission should include only the extension request, not the full tax return.
