Louisiana will issue tax refunds via paper check, rather than debit card, if taxpayers don’t say how they want the refunds.

The measure (House Bill 436) by Rep. Jim Fannin, R-Jonesboro, will end the revenue department’s practice of giving prepaid debit cards to people who don’t spell out that they want to receive their tax refunds through direct deposit or check. The bill received final legislative approval with unanimous support from the Senate, including support from all local senators.
