BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana's revenue department says taxpayers who need more time to file their state personal income tax returns have to file extension requests before Wednesday's filing deadline.

The requests can be submitted online at www.revenue.louisiana.gov/extensions .

Taxpayers who don't seek an extension and miss the Wednesday filing deadline could face late-filing penalties and fees. Taxpayers who receive extensions could also be subject to penalties, but not as severe.
