Louisiana is recovering from a ransomware attack on their entire state, including tax filing website. 

Tax filings due November 20, 2019, have been administratively extended to November 25, 2019.

On November 18, 2019, a ransomware attack impacted operations and services of Louisiana state government , including the Louisiana Department of Revenue (“Department”). No state tax returns or confidential taxpayer information was breached during the attack. However, certain services provided by the Department remain delayed as of the publication of this bulletin, including the Department’s Louisiana Taxpayer Access Point (“LaTAP”) and Parish E-file.
