Frequently Asked Questions
I did not live in or receive income from Louisiana. Why did I receive an individual income tax bill?
The bill is based on information received from the Internal Revenue Service because your federal return was filed with a Louisiana address. A temporary absence from Louisiana does not automatically change your domicile for income tax purposes. You must confirm your intention to change your domicile to another state by actions taken to establish a new domicile outside of Louisiana and by actions taken to abandon the Louisiana domicile and its privileges. You are considered to be a Louisiana resident if you continue to maintain a residence in Louisiana while working in another state.
