BATON ROUGE – Owners of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets can interact with the Louisiana Department of Revenue through a new, mobile-friendly version of the LDR website, the agency announced Tuesday.
LDR Mobile is designed for maximum readability and functionality in mobile Internet browsers.
Visitors to LDR Mobile can check the status of their income tax refunds, make credit card payments and send e-mail inquiries to LDR subject-matter experts.
“Full-featured mobile devices are part of the fabric of daily life for many people,” said Secretary of Revenue Cynthia Bridges. “This is why the Department of Revenue is making many of its customer service functions available on mobile platforms.”
According to the Pew Internet & American Life Project, one in three American adults owns a smartphone.[i] Twenty five percent of smartphone owners say the phone is their primary means of accessing the Internet.
To use LDR Mobile, simply point your mobile browser to www.revenue.louisiana.gov. The site will recognize that you are visiting from a mobile device, and will load LDR Mobile instead of the regular website. Use the Add to Home Screen feature to download the LDR Mobile icon to your phone.
