CONSUMER ALERT: St. Mary Parish woman operating tax prep business in violation of court order...Continue Reading

BATON ROUGE – The Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) has won an order of contempt against a St. Mary Parish woman operating a tax preparation business in violation of a court judgment.

The original consent judgment, signed Dec. 20, 2021, prohibits Dawanna Monay Monroe (Booking Photo), of Patterson, from filing, assisting in, or directing the preparation of any Louisiana tax return but her own. She had previously pled guilty to multiple felonies for a tax fraud scheme involving fabricated business losses for companies that did not exist. After her conviction, LDR sued Monroe to prevent her from working as a tax preparer in the state.

The department went back to court this year after the LDR Criminal Investigations Division determined Monroe was still working as a tax preparer in violation of the December 2021 order. They interviewed numerous taxpayers who said Monroe participated directly or indirectly in the preparation of their returns through her business, Tax & Financial Consultants, LLC, operating at two locations:

·         317 Callahan Street, Patterson

·         801 S. Lewis Street, New Iberia

As of May 18, 2022, Monroe’s email address is listed as a primary contact on the business’s Facebook page, and records from the Louisiana Secretary of State show that she maintains an ownership interest.

The 16th Judicial District Court in St. Mary Parish issued the contempt order this month requiring Monroe to withdraw any interest she has in any business engaged in the preparation or filing of Louisiana tax returns or other related documents or forms.

“We take seriously our responsibility to protect Louisiana taxpayers,” Secretary of Revenue Kevin Richard said. “If any preparer files state tax returns in violation of a consent judgment, the Department of Revenue will not hesitate to take them back to court.”

 

Louisiana state income tax filing deadline is Monday, May 16...Continue Reading

BATON ROUGE – The filing and payment deadline for 2021 state individual income tax is Monday, May 16.

Taxpayers can file their returns electronically through Louisiana File Online, the state’s free web portal for individual tax filers. They can also submit their returns using commercially available tax preparation software, or with printed state returns available at www.revenue.louisiana.gov/Forms.

Taxpayers who need more time to prepare their returns can request a filing extension at www.revenue.louisiana.gov/Extensions. Extension requests must be made before the filing deadline. It is important to remember that a filing extension only grants additional time to submit a tax return. It does not grant additional time to pay any taxes that are due. Unless the taxpayer enters into an installment agreement, payments submitted after the May 16 deadline are subject penalties and interest.  

Deadline for Louisiana Transfer Pricing Managed Audit Program is April 30, 2022 ...Continue Reading

BATON ROUGE – The application deadline for the Louisiana Transfer Pricing Managed Audit Program, a voluntary initiative aimed at resolving intercompany transfer pricing issues, is April 30, 2022.

The Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) introduced the program to create an efficient and expedited resolution for transfer pricing issues involving corporate tax audits, and to provide certainty and uniformity to taxpayers.

The benefits of this transfer pricing managed audit program include:

·        Increased understanding of how Louisiana tax laws apply to their business activity and Intercompany Transactions

·         Less disruption to business operations because the taxpayer will manage their own resources in conducting the audit

·         Waiver of penalties that would otherwise be due based on the results of the managed audit

·         Abatement of interest during the course of the managed audit

To participate in the program, a taxpayer must meet the following eligibility criteria:

·         Established history of voluntary tax compliance with LDR, if previously registered with LDR

·         Certification that the taxpayer has available time and resources to dedicate as a participant in the Program

·         Available and suitable records concerning Intercompany Transactions

·         Reasonable expectation of ability to pay an expected liability

LDR strongly encourages corporations with transfer pricing adjustments to participate in this voluntary program to proactively resolve potential disputes in lieu of the standard audit, protest, and litigation process.
