The Louisiana Department of Revenue has issued Revenue Information Bulletin (RIB) 12-027, Resale Certificate Renewal Process:
Dealers with Louisiana Department of Revenue-issued resale exemption certificates must now renew their certificates online through the Louisiana Taxpayer Access Point (LaTAP) system. Resale dealers who are not registered for LaTAP should to do so in order to complete the renewal process. To register an account in LaTAP, visit LDR’s website at www.revenue.louisiana.gov/latap .
LDR will no longer issue the Limited Resale Dealer Certificate (Form R-1055). Instead, all dealers who renew their resale certificates will receive the Resale Dealer Certificate (Form R-1064). A Form R-1055 certificate will continue to be valid until the expiration date shown on it; vendors may accept it until the expiration date.
