LOUISIANA DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE REMINDS TAXPAYERS THAT STATE INDIVIDUAL INCOME TAX DEADLINE IS MAY 15

Baton Rouge – The Louisiana Department of Revenue reminds Louisiana taxpayers that the state individual income tax filing deadline is Thursday, May 15, 2008.

May 15 is the deadline to file, pay, or request a filing extension for your 2007 tax individual state income tax returns. If the tax is not paid on or before the filing deadline, interest and penalties will be charged.

Secretary of Revenue Cynthia Bridges says, “Citizens often underestimate how important it is to file their returns and pay their taxes in a timely manner. All of the services that contribute to our quality of life in Louisiana depend upon the tax dollars that our citizens contribute."
