The Louisiana Department of Treasury is granting automatic renewals to taxpayers whose residence, principal place of business, important tax records, or paid tax advisors are in the 25 communities hit by Hurricane Ida, according to an LDR press release.
Parishes include: Ascension, Iberville, Orleans, St. Mary, Assumption, Plaquemines, St. Tammany, East Baton Rouge, Pointe Coupee, Tangipahoa, East Feliciana, St. Bernard, Terrebonne, Iberia, St. Charles, Washington, St Helena, West Baton Rouge, Jefferson, West Feliciana, Lafourche, Livingston, St. John the Baptist and St. Martin.
For excise, franchise, income, severance and withholding taxes with original or extended due dates on or after August 26, 2021 and before January 3, 2022, the automatic extended due date is January 3, 2022.
This is an extension to the filing of applicable tax returns, but not an extension to the payment of taxes due. Payments received after the original deadlines are subject to penalties and interest.
