Louisiana Department of Revenue Executes Additional Extensions for 2005 Returns Specifically for Filing L-3 and Fourth Quarter Declarations


As directed by Legislative Statute 47:114 (F), the L-3 withholding reconciliation is to be filed, “On or before the first business day following February 27th of each year for the preceding calendar year.” In response to circumstances created by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita the Louisiana Department of Revenue will extend the February 28, 2006 deadline for the filing of the 2005 L-3 by thirty days. The new deadline will be March 30, 2006.

In addition, LDR has extended the deadline for the filing of the fourth quarter individual income tax declaration from its original due date of January 15, 2006 to a revised deadline of February 28, 2006. The extension allows fourth quarter payments not to become due prior to the extended deadline of third quarter obligations.

As part of a continuing effort to provide taxpayers affected by the hurricanes with additional time to compile their records, these most recent LDR extensions are intended to support taxpayers dealing with interruptions related to the devastation of this past hurricane season.

The Louisiana Department of Revenue’s mission is to administer the applicable tax laws of the state of Louisiana as well as regulations concerning alcohol, tobacco and charitable gaming.
