Louisiana Department of Revenue Launches New Online Business ID Application

Baton Rouge, LA- The Louisiana Department of Revenue will launch a new Online Businesses ID Application to obtain a State Revenue Account Number on January 15, 2008. Business owners can now register their tax accounts online for fast and convenient service.
The Online Business ID Application allows new business, existing businesses with new locations, or existing businesses with a new tax type to register their tax accounts—all online. The online application provides the same services as the paper based registration form, but is faster, easier and more convenient.

“The new Online Business ID Application was created to provide a streamlined process for our business owners, as well as to provide a faster turnaround time in receiving their Revenue Account numbers” says Cynthia Bridges, Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Revenue.

To obtain a Revenue Account number with the State of Louisiana, a taxpayer may do one of the following:
1. Register through the Online Business Application on the LDR website; or
2. Register at any of our 8 regional offices

To register online or for more information on the Louisiana Online Business ID Application, visit our website at, and click the “Online Application” link.
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.
