State Income Tax Refund Status

Revenue, Tax Services Division

Taxpayers may check the status of their Louisiana individual income tax return refunds using the Department of Revenue's online system or by telephone.

To check the status of your individual income tax refund, you will need to enter the following information: Social Security number, filing status, and the exact amount of refund shown on your return. If a joint tax return was filed, either the primary or spouse's social security number can be entered.

Check Online: Taxpayers can check the status of their individual income tax refunds online at: https://esweb.revenue.louisiana.gov/wheresmyrefund/

Check by Phone: You can also check on the status of your individual income tax refund by calling toll-free 1-888-829-3071. If you are calling from Baton Rouge, call (225) 922-3270.

How long will it take to get a refund?

If you filed your taxes electronically, information on your refund should be available in 8-10 business days. If you filed a paper return, allow 12-16 weeks before checking on the status of your refund.

However, if the income tax return is randomly selected for review, the refund may be delayed. A taxpayer whose refund is being reviewed should be notified of the delay.

To avoid delayed income tax refunds, follow the advice provided by the Louisiana Department of Revenue at: http://wwwprd1.doa.louisiana.gov/AskLouise/PublicPages/DisplayQA.cfm?RecordID=338
