What You Need to Know About Electronic Funds Transfers

by

Have you received a notice from the Louisiana Department of Revenue saying you will be required to make electronic payments for tax periods due on or after January 1, 2020? If so, here’s some information – and links – to help you make those payments. 

Taxpayers whose average payments exceed $5,000 are required to make electronic payments or Electronic Funds Transfers (EFT).

Taxpayers whose payment amounts do not fall within the mandated thresholds may volunteer to pay electronically.

Once a taxpayer is notified they are required to pay electronically, payments not made electronically will be considered delinquent and subject to penalties and interest.

The recommended electronic payment method is the Louisiana Taxpayer Access Point (LaTAP), which can be found by clicking here.
