Taxpayers can estimate 2009 state income tax online

BATON ROUGE – Lower individual state income tax rates will become effective January 1, 2009, due to the passage of Act 396 of 2008, which repealed provisions of a 2003 tax law known as the Stelly Plan.

For taxpayers in the affected income brackets, the lower rates under Act 396, also known as the Shaw Bill, will apply to their 2009 Individual Louisiana Income Tax Returns, to be filed no later than May 15, 2010.

Individuals who wish to estimate how the Shaw Bill will affect their paycheck withholding during the 2009 tax year can do so with the 2009 State Income Tax Estimator, available on the website of the Louisiana Department of Revenue. Taxpayers who choose to temporarily reduce their income tax withholding can complete the Temporary Employee Exemption Certificate L-4 form.
