Guidance concerning the Louisiana Form L-4 (R-1300)


The Louisiana Department of Revenue has stated, notwithstanding the revised 2018 income tax withholding tables now in effect, employees are not required to update the exemptions and dependents shown on the Form L-4 that is currently on file with their employers.



However, the Department suggests that employees that have additional withholding amounts withheld (Line 8 of Form L-4) should review their Form L-4 to confirm the appropriate amount of Louisiana income tax is withheld.



For questions regarding this matter, please contact the Louisiana Department of Revenue’s – Policy Services Division at (225) 219-2780. If employees have questions concerning their individual return, they should contact the Louisiana Department of Revenue’s Customer Service line at (855) 307-3893.
