Are you ready to get back money from the state of Louisiana?  The Louisiana Department of Revenue says they will start processing 2013 income tax returns by the end of this month so you can file for your tax refund if you are eligible for one.

The state revenue department says state income tax forms will be available online by January 31.  That is also the same day that Louisiana's free electronic filing application will start to accept returns.

The deadline for filing your Louisiana income tax return is May 15.

You can find information on tax refund information at the Department of Revenue's website, www.revenue.louisiana.gov.

The department says that electronic filing of tax returns is the fastest way to get your refund.
