If you haven't filed your Louisiana income tax return, you have a few more hours to do so.

The Louisiana Department of Revenue will accept 2017 state individual tax returns until 11:59pm on Tuesday, May 15.

State officials add that enhanced security measures have been implemented to protect taxpayers from identity theft and other types of tax fraud.

Those hoping for speedy returns are encouraged to file electronically through Louisiana File Online, the state's free web portal.
