If your company has chosen the ACH Credit Method of payment for Louisiana Unemployment Taxes, the following information must be used:

  • Louisiana Workforce Commission Transit and Routing Number 065400137
  • Louisiana Workforce Commission Bank Account Number 645889593

Your Electronic Funds Transfer (ACH Credit) must be sent in time to meet the due date.  It is your responsibility to authorize your financial institution to send this payment in the prescribed manner.

Filing your tax payments electronically precludes the need to send a paper report (LWC ES-4).  A wage listing of individual employee wages and social security numbers is still required.  Employers are encouraged to report this information using the Louisiana Workforce Commission's Magnetic Media Reporting Program (PDF)
