  • On June 14, 2012, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal issued a letter notifying the former Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Revenue (“the Department”), Cynthia Bridges, that the Governor rejected the Department’s recently-promulgated emergency rule regarding implementation of Louisiana’s Alternative Fuel Tax Credit statute. A subsequent statement from the Department released on June 19, 2012 confirms that the Governor has indeed rescinded the emergency rule. However, the June 19 statement clarifies that the Department will honor any refunds already paid and, with respect to the credit, will grant refund requests postmarked on or before June 14, 2012, the date the emergency rule was rescinded. In addition, the Department stated that it will address questions about future claims for refunds relating to the credit after a thorough rule-making process is completed.
