Understanding Personal Income Tax in Louisiana
Louisiana personal income tax is discussed.
If you are a resident or nonresident of Louisiana and receive taxable income individually from property owned or business transacted in Louisiana, you are subject to tax on net income. Therefore, if you are operating your business as an S corporation, partnership, limited liability company, or sole proprietorship, you will be subject to a personal income tax on your business income that passes through to you.
