Individual Income Online Tax Filing

Important! For information on the changes to the 2016 individual income tax, see

The Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) issued guidance for taxpayers, in the form of Revenue Information Bulletins (RIB) and new worksheets, for tax legislation recently passed during the 2015 Regular Legislative Session.

LDR released worksheets to assist with the legislative changes under Acts 109, 125 and 133 for filing 2014 or prior tax years. The worksheets are:

The worksheets must be attached to tax returns. Taxpayers will have the ability to upload documents including these worksheets before submitting your return. If taxpayers do not attach the worksheets to their tax returns, LDR will assume that the adjustments under Acts 109, 125 or 133 have not been made and will reduce the credits as required by the new legislation.
