How do I check on the status of the refund on my Louisiana individual income tax?


 

To check the status of your individual income tax refund, you will need to enter the following information: Social Security number, filing status, and the exact amount of refund shown on your return. If a joint tax return was filed, either the primary or spouse's social security number can be entered.

Check Online: Taxpayers can check the status of their individual income tax refunds on the Web site of the Louisiana Department of Revenue at: https://esweb.revenue.louisiana.gov/wheresmyrefund/

 

This service is available anytime, day or night.

Check by Phone: You can also check on the status of your individual income tax refund by calling toll-free 1-888-829-3071. If you are calling from Baton Rouge, call (225) 922-3270.

This system is available 24 hours a day.

How long will it take to get a refund?

Refunds should be issued in 8-10 business days for individual income tax returns that were filed electronically.

 Refunds for paper individual income tax returns mailed to the Louisiana Department of Revenue can take 12-16 weeks to process.

However, if the income tax return is randomly selected for review, the refund may be delayed. A taxpayer whose refund is being reviewed should be notified of the delay.

To avoid delayed income tax refunds, follow the advice provided by the Louisiana Department of Revenue at: http://asklouise.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/446
