The Louisiana Department of Revenue is ending its temporary suspension of private letter rulings.
The department has issued Revenue Information Bulletin 11-012 to explain this policy change.
Effective September 1, 2011, the temporary suspension of PLR service will be lifted and the Policy Services Division will re-institute the service. As a result, taxpayers and their representatives may begin submitting PLR requests on or after September 1, 2011.
Taxpayers may contact the Policy Services Division at 225-219-2780 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss whether a PLR is appropriate for the situation. If a PLR is inappropriate, other guidance can be given before the taxpayer invests the significant effort required to prepare a request. If it is determined that a PLR is appropriate, the request must be submitted to the Policy Services Division by email at email@example.com or by mail to the following address:
