Time is Running Out to Receive your 2013 Tax Refund!
Louisiana’s once promising solar power industry is on the ropes, as thousands of solar system owners continue to reel from a retroactive state statute that left them each owing as much as $12,500 in installation costs. While legislation could be introduced this spring to reimburse the owners, solar installers feel their industry is irreparably damaged.
For years Louisiana has offered tax credits to residents who purchased solar panels for their homes. However, in mid-2015, the Louisiana Legislature and the Louisiana Department of Revenue determined that there was not enough money in the budget to fund the solar tax credits.
11/22/16 UPDATE for Louisiana Hardship License: Per recent news reports, the Louisiana Department of Motor Vehicles plans to reverse it's "no cash" policy on most transactions effective as soon as December 1st. Once effective, cash can again be used for driver's licenses, vehicle registrations, and titles but NOT for reinstatement fees. As the DMV works through this change, we recommend bringing check/money order until it's clear as to whether this Hardship License constitutes a "reinstatement" or not.
I have some great news if you missed your 60-day deadline for appealing the denial of their solar tax panel credit by the Louisiana Department of Revenue -- you may have a second chance to contest the denial!!!!
