LA | For income tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2022, Act 410 of the 2022 Regular Legislative Session changed how an extension is granted. If you know you cannot file your corporate income tax return by the due date, you do not need to file for an extension. You will automatically be granted an extension of six months to November 15, 2023, IF you timely requested an extension for federal income tax purposes. No paper or electronic extension form needs to be filed to obtain the automatic extension.
You will need to mark the box on Form CIFT-620 indicating that you timely requested an extension for federal income tax purposes in order to receive the extension. This is only an extension to file and NOT an extension of time to pay the tax due. Payments received after the return due date will be charged interest and late payment penalty. Electronic payment can be made through LaTAP or by credit card . If you need to mail in a check or money order, you must use the extension payment voucher, Form CIFT-620EXT-V. This voucher can be printed through the Online Payment Voucher application.
