According to a Louisiana Workforce Commission (LWC) representative, to further assist Louisiana employers during the COVID-19 national emergency, the due date for the second-quarter 2020 state unemployment insurance (SUI) wage and tax reports and SUI tax payment will be deferred to September 15, 2020. (Email response to inquiry, June 18, 2020.)

LWC previously extended the filing deadline for the first-quarter 2020 SUI returns and payment to June 30, 2020. This deadline remains at June 30, 2020, with interest and penalties to be applied beginning July 1, 2020. (Employer electronic reporting portal; EY Payroll Newsflash Vol. 21, #086, 3-21-2020.)

According to the representative, the employer portal will soon be updated to reflect the extended deadline for second-quarter 2020.
