BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - All Louisiana employers now are required to file quarterly unemployment wage and tax reports electronically with the Louisiana Workforce Commission, a change the state says most businesses already have made.

So far, 90 percent of the state’s roughly 100,000 employers have switched successfully to e-filing.

In 2008, the Legislature voted to require all employers to e-file unemployment wage and tax reports, and established penalties for employers who don’t comply. Paper forms and reports will no longer be accepted by the LWC, and are no longer available for download on the LWC’s website.

Wage and tax reports for the first quarter of 2014 are due by April 30.
