Rs 47:115 Refunds And Credits

§115. Refunds and credits

A. Employee refunds and credits.

(1) Income on which any tax is required to be withheld by an employer under this

Sub-part shall be included in the income tax return of the employee, but the amount of tax

deducted or withheld during any calendar year shall be allowed as a credit to such employee

against his income tax liability for the taxable year beginning in such calendar year.

(2) To the extent that the aforesaid credit, together with other credits allowed by law,

is less than the amount of the employee's income tax liability for said taxable year, the

amount of such underpayment shall be paid on or before the date prescribed by law for filing

individual income tax returns for said taxable year and shall be delinquent and past due after

said date.

(3) To the extent that the credit provided for in Paragraph (1) of this Subsection,

together with other credits allowed by law, is in excess of the employee's income tax liability

for the taxable year, as shown on an income tax return filed by such employee for that year,

such overpayment shall be considered as taxes erroneously paid to be credited or refunded

as herein provided. Such overpayment shall be credited to such person's estimated or income

tax liability for the succeeding taxable year unless such person shall claim a refund therefor

except that overpayment of one dollar or less shall be refunded or credited only upon the

receipt by the secretary of a written demand for such refund from the taxpayer; however, the

collector is authorized to consider any final return showing an overpayment as a claim for

refund.

(4) No refund or credit shall be allowed unless the employee provides with his final

income tax return a copy of the employer's receipt for the amount of tax deducted and

withheld from his wages for that taxable year as provided for in R.S. 47:112(L), except that

if such employee submits satisfactory proof that his employer deducted and withheld taxes

from his wages and that his employer failed or refused to furnish him with the prescribed

receipt, such proof may be taken to establish a credit or refund under this Section.

(5) The income tax liability of an employee shall not be affected by the failure of his

employer to withhold the tax required under this Sub-part.

B. Employer refunds and credits.

(1) If more than the correct amount of tax, penalty or interest is paid to the collector

by an employer he may file a claim for refund of such overpayment or the collector may

allow him to take credit for the overpayment against the tax reported on any return which he

subsequently files. However, refund or credit of the overpayment shall be made only to the

extent that the amount of the overpayment exceeds the tax actually withheld and penalty and

interest thereon.

(2) Claims for refund or credit under this Section shall be governed by the general

law relating to the refunding or crediting of overpayments by the collector.

C. Other refunds and credits. To the extent a taxpayer's payments, together with

other credits allowed by law, is in excess of his income tax liability shown on a return filed

for the taxable year, such overpayment shall be considered as taxes erroneously paid to be

credited or refunded as herein provided. Such overpayment shall be credited to the taxpayer's

estimated or income tax liability for the succeeding taxable year unless a claim for refund is

made. Notwithstanding any provision of this Subsection to the contrary, an overpayment of

one dollar or less shall be refunded or credited only upon the receipt by the secretary of a

written demand for such refund from the taxpayer. The secretary is authorized to consider

any final return showing an overpayment as a claim for refund.
