Frequently Asked Questions
My refund was mailed three days ago and I have not received it yet.
The department has responded to increasing occurrences of tax fraud by implementing enhanced security measures to protect Louisiana taxpayers. This means it will take additional time to process refunds. The expected refund processing time for returns filed electronically is up to 45 days. For paper returns, taxpayers should expect to wait as long as 14 weeks. If after this time period you have not received the refund, you can report that your refund was not received by sending us an email through our Contact Us webpage.
