Tax Relief in Louisiana

When looking at how Louisiana ranks with respect to individual tax, the state tends to fare well. Louisiana's personal income tax ranks 21st highest among the fifty states, with a top rate of 6%. The total average of state and local income taxes collected per capita, $527, puts the state in 12th lowest place nationwide. Additionally, with an average of $776 collected in property taxes per resident, Louisiana is 8th lowest among all fifty states.

Even when looking at federal income tax, Louisiana is below the national average. Residents typically pay approximately $9,701 yearly in federal income taxes, $2,000 less than the national average.

However, with the lowest median household income in the nation and one of the highest rates of decline in that household income - $39,622 and 19.75%, respectively - Louisiana faces significant challenges with respect to personal tax debt and delinquency. Any unexpected reduction in income - job loss, medical expenses, and so on - can result in residents finding themselves behind in meeting tax obligations. Understandably, if faced with choosing between feeding their families (or paying the mortgage/rent, or putting gas in the car to get to work) and putting money into savings to pay Uncle Sam, most people will choose to meet the immediate needs and hope for the best later. Of course, this more often than not results in delinquent tax bills. However, more individuals in Louisiana are availing themselves of one power strategy for addressing those challenges: tax relief.

Tax relief companies work with their clients to analyze their individual financial circumstances, and in many instances can help them to significantly reduce their tax debt. An expert tax relief company has access to a wide variety of tools that can be used in their clients' benefit: installment agreements, investigation of tax levies and liens, and audit representation and reconsideration, to name a few.
