Legal Deadlines in Louisiana Temporarily Suspended

As a result of the flooding throughout Louisiana, Governor John Bel Edwards issued Executive Order JBE 2016-053 to suspend deadlines in legal, administrative and regulatory proceedings.  The suspension is retroactive from Friday, August 12, 2016 and continues through Friday, September 9, 2016, unless amended, modified, terminated or rescinded by the Governor.

The Louisiana Department of Revenue issued Revenue Information Bulletin 16-046 to confirm that the suspension applies to all tax assessments issued by the Secretary of the Department.  The delays that are suspend include the prescriptive period for a taxpayer to file a petition for the redetermination of an assessment with the Board of Tax Appeals, as well as all time delays for appeals in Louisiana courts in matters filed by taxpayers and the Department.
