BATON ROUGE- Taxpayers in Louisiana can now choose between methods to receive their state income tax refunds.

Taxpayers who file electronically can select direct deposit, a paper check, or the Louisiana MyRefund Card, a pre-loaded debit card that can be used to withdraw cash at ATMs or bank teller windows, shop and pay bills online, or make purchases and get cash back.

New to the paper state income tax return (Form IT-540) this year is the option of selecting a paper check for your refund, in addition to the MyRefund Card.

Taxpayers who do not select a refund method on the paper form will receive the debit card.

The Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR) encourages electronic filing for all income tax returns.

It is the fastest way to receive your refunds.

Electronic filers receive their refunds within an average of ten business days.

Paper filers can expect to wait at least three months.
