Required Louisiana Payroll Tax Forms 

Whether you are a Louisiana-based company or have employees that work remotely in Louisiana, there are certain Louisiana payroll tax requirements that employers must perform to comply with state tax laws.

For Income Tax Withholding

Employers who withhold or are required to withhold Louisiana income tax from paid wages to employees are obliged to file a withholding tax return. Although there are only three forms that you must file for income tax withholding, they have very strict deadlines. 

  • L-3 Transmittal of Withholding Tax Statements. Employers need to file and submit this form by February 27 each year.
  • L-1 Employer Return of State Income Tax Withheld. Form L-1 must be submitted quarterly by the last day of the month following a calendar quarter-end. 
  • L-1V Withholding Payment Voucher. Depending on your Louisiana payroll tax schedule, form L-1V is due semimonthly, monthly, quarterly, or annually. Quarterly payments must be submitted with form L-1. All other payments must be submitted with an L-1V payment voucher.

Failure to withhold and pay Louisiana payroll tax returns on time will result in the employer being personally liable for the amounts not withheld. 

For Unemployment Taxes

Businesses operating in Louisiana must complete and submit an employer application to determine if they are liable or non-liable for unemployment tax. If you are liable, Form LDOL-ES4 Employer Wage and Tax Report must be submitted quarterly, by the end of the month that follows a calendar quarter-end. 

Although you can conveniently file your Louisiana payroll tax forms online, you still need to remain careful when preparing your forms. Our professional team at Canal HR gives you a second set of eyes when it comes to properly calculating, filing, and submitting your payroll form requirements.

Why Outsource Your Louisiana Payroll Taxes?

Businesses large and small can benefit significantly from allowing Canal HR to administer their payroll tax obligations. From cost savings to access to payroll expert knowledge, your business will experience the many advantages of outsourcing your payroll responsibilities to Canal HR. 

Reduce Payroll Costs

When you administer your payroll activities in-house, you may end up spending way more than you bargained for. Every time you process payroll and print checks, reports, and other forms, you spend a large portion of your office resources—increasing your costs to replenish the used goods. Canal HR can help you reduce your costs that are required to process your payroll activities because we handle everything for you with our own resources.

Save Time with Expert Knowledge

State and federal tax regulations, withholding rates, and government forms are constantly changing, which makes it difficult for your staff to stay up to date with the latest revisions while maintaining their normal responsibilities. 

Our professional team of payroll experts will help you decrease the time it takes to perform your company’s necessary payroll duties. We make it easier for you to administer ongoing payroll through reduction or increase in compensation structure and filing of reports to government authorities. 

With our help, you’ll avoid payroll filing mistakes that can result in harsh IRS penalties at the end of the year.
