As in most states, every employer who has resident or nonresident employees working within Louisiana is required to withhold state income tax. To that end, every employer who withheld tax must file Form L-1. Each return covers one quarterly taxable period and must be completed and submitted by the filing deadline. Quarterly returns must be filed even if no taxes were withheld during the quarter. Put simply, all business owners much frequently, consistently, and accurately file Louisiana income tax withholding—regardless of the wages paid to employees.
While payments are made according to an employer’s mandated payment frequency, accurate filing is required on at least a quarterly basis. Every three months, employers must dive into their payroll software, figure out how much their employees were paid, and determine the total amount of Louisiana payroll tax withholding. If you don’t have a modern payroll system, this process can be extremely tedious and time-consuming. For Louisiana small business owners, this task can mean the difference between a productive week and an unproductive week.
