Louisiana Department of Revenue reopens Shreveport regional office...Continue Reading

BATON ROUGE – The Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) has resumed full walk-in customer service for individual and business taxpayers in northwest Louisiana with the re-opening of the LDR Shreveport Regional Office.
