Gov Edwards at Lafayette Department of Revenue Opening

On Thursday, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards was in Lafayette for the opening of the regional office for the Department of Revenue.

Edwards joined Secretary of Revenue Kimberly Lewis Robinson and state lawmakers from across Acadiana to celebrate the opening of the Lafayette regional office.

According to the Governor's Office, most locations across the state closed or scaled back services in 2012 due to lack of funding.

Edwards says it was part of his goal to bring back customer services to the Louisiana taxpayers.

"The closure of our Lafayette office left a customer service gap," Secretary Robinson said. "The stabilization of the state budget under the governor's leadership allows us to resume the level of service that taxpayers in Acadiana need and deserve."

Louisiana Department of Revenue Lafayette Regional Office is located on Dulles Drive in Lafayette.
