Taxpayers take Round Two!

boxing glovesThe Louisiana Department of Revenue has lost round two in its fight against the refundable $3,000 income tax credit for the purchase of flex fuel vehicles (FFV).  Judge Scott Gardner ruled for the taxpayers on December 22, 2014 at the 22nd JDC, affirming the decision granting the La. R.S. 47:6035 credit to FFVs in Bolotte v. LDR, 8007 (Bd. Tax App., May 14, 2014).  While we wait for this lead case to complete its appeal process, anyone purchasing a FFV in 2010 has until December 31, 2014 to amend their 2010 tax return to claim the credit.  2011 purchasers have until December 31, 2013 to amend.
