State of Louisiana
Personal Income Tax Extensions
Modified 2019 Tax Return Due Date: July 15, 2020
Louisiana Filing Due Date: Individual income tax returns are due by May 15—or by the 15th day of the 5th month following the end of the taxable year (for fiscal year filers).
Extended Deadline with Louisiana Tax Extension: Louisiana offers a 6-month extension, which moves the filing deadline from May 15 to November 15 (for calendar year filers).
Louisiana Tax Extension Form: Louisiana’s extension application is electronic, which means you have to go online to request a state extension. You can electronically submit your Louisiana extension using the “Online Extensions” system: esweb.revenue.louisiana.gov/OnlineTaxExtensions
Louisiana Extension Payment Requirement: An extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay your Louisiana income tax. All state tax payments are due by the original deadline of the return. Any tax that isn’t paid on time will be subject to interest and penalties. To make an extension payment for your Louisiana income tax, use Form R-2868V — or pay electronically through Louisiana Online Extension Filing: esweb.revenue.louisiana.gov/OnlineTaxExtensions
