BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — If you haven’t filed your 2019 state income tax return, you have until Wednesday to do so.

The Louisiana Department of Revenue reminds residents that the deadline to submit returns and payments is July 15. The department extended the original April and May due dates for individual, corporation, fiduciary and partnership income taxes because of the coronavirus pandemic.

No penalties or interest will be applied to returns or payments submitted by the deadline.

Taxpayers who need more time file can request an extension at www.revenue.louisiana.gov/extensions. An extension does not grant more time to pay any taxes due. Payments submitted after the deadline are subject to penalities and interest.

The state deadline coincides with the federal income tax deadline, which was also extended as a result of the pandemic.
