LDR News Release: ‘LDR suspends Private Letter Ruling service’

BATON ROUGE – The Louisiana Department of Revenue will temporarily suspend the issuance of Private Letter Rulings (PLRs). The suspension takes effect on January 1, 2011. The last day to submit a PLR request is December 31, 2010.

“This suspension is taking place due to budget constraints,” Secretary of Revenue Cynthia Bridges said. “Reviews of our processes demonstrated the need to re-dedicate our resources to other critical taxpayer programs.”

This temporary suspension of the PLR service will not affect any PLR requests received on or before December 31, 2010.
