The Louisiana Department of Revenue has issued Revenue Information Bulletin 13-020 – Using Correct Sales Tax Return for Each Sales Tax Period.
With the change in Vendor’s Compensation to .935 percent via Act 425 of the 2013 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature, a new sales tax return is to be used for all sales tax periods beginning on July 1, 2013. For easy reference, the table below indicates the correct sales tax return to be used for each sales tax filing period. The number in the right hand column of the table references the form number for each different sales tax filing period for the sales tax return (Form R-1029).
Filing Periods Return July 2013 to Present Form 4316 July 2012 to June 2013 Form 4010 July 2011 to June 2012 Form 4010 July 2010 to June 2011 Form 4010 July 2009 to June 2010 Form 4911 July 2009 to June 2009 Form 4801 July 2007 to June 2008 Form 4701
Using the wrong return will cause processing delays, and you could be required to submit the sales tax return again on the correct form. When completing a sales tax return, your Name, Address, LDR Account Number, and the Filing Period must be included.
