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 (LDR) determined that there was not enough money in the budget to fund the solar tax credits.  So, the legislature decided to place a funding "cap" on the total amount of credits that the state will honor each year between now and 2017. The "cap" has resulted in the denial or deferment of payment of the solar tax credits to thousands of Louisiana taxpayers who are now left confused, frustrated . . . and frankly down right angry!

When it comes to tax collections state policymakers are constantly faced with hard choices about what’s fair and effective for collecting taxes from fellow citizens. These tough decisions become complicated when you’re talking about collecting overdue tax bills.

You’re recently divorced and finally getting your life back together — ready to move out of the apartment you’ve been living in with your kids into a home with a yard. After touring dozens of homes with your Realtor, you finally find the perfect home. The Realtor perfects the purchase agreement and the loan application is submitted to the mortgage company. But, then the “elephant” emerges.
