Special events vendors encouraged to register as sales tax users at Department of Revenue’s New Orleans office...Continue Reading

 

NEW ORLEANS – Prospective vendors at special events in Louisiana, such as next month’s Voodoo Fest, are encouraged to register as soon as possible to collect and remit sales taxes to the state.

 

The Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) requires all individuals and entities making retail sales within the state to collect and remit sales tax, even if selling only one time per year at special events such as festivals, fairs, concerts and craft shows. Failure to collect and remit sales taxes can result in late filing and payment penalties, along with interest.

 

In New Orleans, special events vendors can register as sales tax users at the LDR New Orleans regional office in Benson Towers, 1450 Poydras, Suite 800. The office is open for walk-in customer service Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Services include:

 

·         Special event registrations

·         Filing and paying business taxes

·         Submitting completed state Individual Income Tax returns (staff cannot assist with the completion of IIT returns)

·         Boat registrations

·         ATC/video poker/lottery/driver’s license/Wildlife & Fisheries tax clearances

·         Payment plans

·         Resolving bank levies and wage garnishments

 

If you can’t make it to the LDR New Orleans regional office, you can register as a sales tax user online at www.revenue.louisiana.gov/LaTAP.

Protect tax records and financial documents from weather-related threats...Continue Reading

 

BATON ROUGE – To mark National Preparedness Month, the Louisiana Department of Revenue encourages taxpayers to protect their tax records and other financial documents from flood damage and other weather-related threats.

 

“A few simple steps can help to minimize hardship and confusion in the aftermath of a storm,” Secretary of Revenue Kimberly Lewis Robinson said. “There is no substitute for being prepared.”

 

Keep documents secure

Paper records are especially vulnerable to water damage. Protect these documents by placing them in airtight plastic containers or zip closure bags, and moving them out of harm’s way.

Use paperless media & cloud storage

Bank statements and other financial documents are available as electronic records from your financial institution. Preserve these records by saving them to portable memory drives or burning them to CDs. Store them in airtight containers.

Scan important records such as tax returns, W-2s and payroll records into an electronic format. Many commercially available home printers include scanning features.

Web-based email services offer account holders free online data storage. You can upload electronic records to cloud storage from your home or business computer and retrieve them later from any device with internet access. This can be helpful if you are evacuated.

Document valuables & business equipment

Compile a room-by-room list of your belongings or business equipment. Photograph or videotape the contents of your home or business, especially items of high value. Having a visual record of your valuables can provide proof for an insurance claim, and can help to verify a loss claim on state and federal tax returns.

Get a Game Plan

 

If you have to leave your home to escape severe weather, the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness recommends you bring the following documents with you in a portable, waterproof container:

 

  • Driver's license or personal identification
  • Social Security card
  • Proof of residence (deed or lease)
  • Insurance policies
  • Birth and marriage certificates
  • Stocks, bonds and other negotiable certificates
  • Wills, deeds and copies of recent tax returns

Following a disaster, the Department of Revenue will provide information on potential tax deductions or credits, filing extensions and other tax-related relief.

Louisiana Department of Revenue resumes full customer service operations at New Orleans Office...Continue Reading

 

NEW ORLEANS – The New Orleans office of the Louisiana Department of Revenue has resumed full customer service operations five days a week for individual and business taxpayers, the department announced Tuesday.

 

“We recognize that reducing operations to one-day-a-week-by-appointment-only several years ago left a void for taxpayers in the New Orleans area,” Secretary of Revenue Kimberly Lewis Robinson said. “With the stabilization of our budget under the Edwards administration, we are able to resume the level of customer service that New Orleans-area taxpayers need and deserve.”

 

The office is open for walk-in customer service Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Services include:

 

·         Filing and paying business taxes

·         Submitting completed state individual income tax returns (staff cannot assist with the completion of tax returns)

·         Boat registrations

·         ATC/Video Poker/Lottery/Driver’s License/Wildlife & Fisheries tax clearances

·         Payment plans

·         Special events registrations

·         Resolving bank levies and wage garnishments

 

The office is located at:

 

Benson Towers

1450 Poydras Street, Suite 800
