"The Pelican State"

eFile.com makes it easy for you to e-file your IRS and Louisiana State Tax Return (e.g resident, nonresident, or part-year resident returns). However, the IRS and the respective State Tax Agencies require you to e-file a Federal Income Tax Return at the same time you e-file a State Tax Return. This is not an eFile.com policy but an IRS and State Agency policy. Thus, technically you cannot e-File anywhere - not just eFile.com - a Louisiana Tax Return without also e-filing the associated IRS Tax Return. But there is good news, please read on.

Detailed instructions on how you can only prepare and mail in - not eFile - a Louisiana 2022 Tax Return - here via eFile.com. However, you must download/print and sign the forms and mail them to the Tax Agency.
