Louisiana 2016 Tax Updates

Louisiana's tax laws have been updated in 2016 to prioritize the claiming of certain Louisiana credits over others (such as the nonrefundable Child Care Credit) that are available to be carried forward to future tax years. The state use tax rate paid on untaxed purchases (from internet retailers, etc.) was also increased to 9% for all purchases made beginning April 1, 2016.

Louisiana has reduced the Citizens Insurance Credit to only 25% of of the Citizens assessment paid with the property insurance. A handful of uncommon Louisiana credits have also been added or removed.

Lastly, if this is your first year filing a Louisiana tax return, Louisiana requires that you receive your refund via check. Direct deposit of your refund won't be an option.
