Welcome to Parish E-File

Parish E-File is an online tool that facilitates secure electronic filing of state and parish/city sales and use tax returns. Taxpayers should be collecting and remitting both state and parish/city taxes on taxable sales. Parish E-File permits the filing of multiple parish/city returns from one centralized site.

Parish E-File is provided to you at no charge and offers an easy-to-use registration. In addition, taxpayers are able to maintain their own identifying and demographic information.

The Louisiana Legislature has enacted Act 1 of the 2018 Third Extraordinary Session. Act 1 reduces the state sales tax rate from 5% to 4.45% effective July 1, 2018. Also, beginning July 1, 2018, the overall state sales tax rate for the sale at retail, the use, the consumption, the distribution, and the storage to be used or consumed of steam, water, electric power or energy, natural gas, or other energy sources for non-residential use (business utilities), will be 2 percent (2%) levied pursuant to La. R.S. 47:302. For more information, please see Revenue Information Bulletin 18-016.

If you file a return for a hotel or room rentals in Orleans or Jefferson parish, the sales tax collected by LDR on room rentals decreased to 9.45% (Column D decreased to 2.45%). For locations with less than 10 rooms, the rate decreased to 4.45%.

Louisiana Department of Revenue has created a webpage dedicated to informing taxpayers of any changes to the state sales tax rate and exemptions. You may visit the webpage at www.revenue.louisiana.gov/SalesTax/SalesTaxRates for more information.
