Frequently Asked Questions
When I make an estimated payment by the due date of my Louisiana Corporation Income and Franchise taxes return, am I automatically granted an extension to file?
No, a payment does not qualify as a request for an extension to file. Corporate taxpayers who need additional time to file their Louisiana corporation income and franchise tax returns may request an extension electronically by:
- Requesting the extensions electronically through the bulk extension filing application or the Online Extension Filing application on LDR web site;
- Requesting the extensions electronically through tax preparation software that supports the electronic filing of the Louisiana Application for Extension to File Corporation Income and Franchise Tax; or
- Requesting an extension request via LDR’s IVR phone system by calling 225-922-3270 or 888-829-3071. For an extension request, select option #3, then select option #2. Taxpayers will need the Corporation’s LA tax account number to request the extension.
