However, taxpayers who placed property into service after September 10, 2001 are required to compute Kentucky depreciation under IRC Section 168 according to the provisions in effect on December 31, 2001. Taxpayers who placed property into service after September 10, 2001 but before January 1, 2020 are required to compute the expense deduction under IRC Section 179 according to provisions in effect on December 31, 2001. Taxpayers who placed property into service on or after January 1, 2020 are required to compute the expense deduction under IRC Section 179 according to provisions in effect on December 31, 2003, except that the phase-out provisions of IRC Section 179, limiting the qualifying investment in property, shall not apply. INDIVIDUAL ESTIMATED TAX PAYMENTS 2019 estimated tax rules changed to generally follow federal guidelines for individuals: • Four installments at 25% of the estimated tax due each; April 15*, June 15*, September 15, and January 15 of the following tax year • Allow Annualized Income Installments • Declaration Penalty replaced with Estimated Tax Penalty * Due July 15, 2020 At the direction of Governor Beshear and SB 150, the Kentucky Department of Revenue adopted the income tax relief set forth in Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Notice 2020-18, Relief for Taxpayers Affected by Ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 Pandemic, as well as the additional relief provided in IRS Notice 2020-20 and Notice 2020-23. This income tax relief was applicable to individual, corporate, limited liability, fiduciary and pass-through filers with filing and payment deadlines of on or after April 15, 2020 and before July 15, 2020. This relief includes: • Kentucky income tax return filings currently due on April 15, 2020, May 15, 2020, and June 15, 2020 for individual, corporate, limited liability, fiduciary and pass-through filers, shall now be due July 15, 2020; • Kentucky income tax payments currently due on April 15, 2020, May 15, 2020, and June 15, 2020 for individual, corporate, limited liability, fiduciary and pass-through filers, shall now be due July 15, 2020. Estimated payments due on these dates are included in the deferral; and • The calculation and application of penalties, fees and interest corresponding to Kentucky income tax filings and payments now due on July 15, 2020 for individual, corporate and limited liability filers shall begin on July 16, 2020. REFUNDS—HB 351 updated KRS Chapter 141 to require that no refund shall be made of any estimated tax paid unless a return is filed. FAMILY SIZE TAX CREDIT—This credit provides benefits to individuals and families at incomes up to 133 percent of the threshold amount based on the federal poverty level. The 2020 threshold amount is $12,760 for a family size of one, $17,240 for a family of two, $21,720 for a family of three, and $26,200 for a family of four or more. INCOME GAP TAX CREDIT—This credit is only available to taxpayers who are eligible to take the Family Size tax credit and have a family size of three or less. This credit was created for those taxpayers whose tax rate increased after HB 487 implemented a flat tax rate of 5%. This credit will be available for tax years 2019 and 2020. UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION—Kentucky does not conform to the Federal American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 which allows up to $10,200 of unemployment compensation received in 2020 to be excluded from gross income. All unemployment compensation earned as a Kentucky resident is subject to Kentucky income tax. Any amount excluded up to the $10,200 on the federal income tax return is required to be added back on the Kentucky individual income tax return. Kentucky residents will add back on Schedule M, Line 5 as an “Other Addition” and part-year Kentucky residents will include on 740-NP, Section B, Column B, line 13 as unemployment compensation. CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTIONS—Kentucky does not conform to the federal Cares Act provision which created a $300 “Above the Line” deduction for qualified charitable contribution. Kentucky also does not conform to the federal Cares Act provision which suspended limits on charitable contributions. The “Above the Line” contribution claimed on Federal form 1040 or 1040SR, line 10(b) should be reflected as an other deduction on Form 740-NP, page 4, line 30, Column A. This “Above the Line” deduction should not be claimed on Form 740-NP, page 4, line 30, Column B. If you itemize deductions for Kentucky you may deduct your contributions on Kentucky Schedule A. Your charitable contributions will be limited to 60% of your Kentucky AGI. See instructions for Kentucky Schedule A. SCHEDULE KNOL—Net operating losses generated on or after January 1, 2018, are limited to 80% of the taxable income, but any unused amount are available for carryforward indefinitely. Schedule KNOL must be completed if you are claiming a Kentucky Net Operating Loss deduction on Kentucky Schedule M. Kentucky did not adopt the CARES Act amendment for the suspension of the 80% net operating loss limitation. 3 EXCESS BUSINESS LOSS LIMITATION—Kentucky did not adopt the CARES Act amendment for the suspension of the excess business loss limitation. If you are an individual taxpayer and your net losses from your trades or businesses are more than $255,000 ($510,000 for married taxpayers filing jointly or married filing separately on a combined return) you will need to complete Kentucky Form 461-K. For 740 filers you will enter the amount calculated from Form 461-K, line 16 on Form 740, Schedule M, line 5 and 740-NP Filers will enter the calculated amount from Form 461-K, line 16 on From 740-NP, page 4, line 16, Column B. The Kentucky excess business loss will be added to your net operating loss (NOL) carryforward. KENTUCKY SELLING FARMERS TAX CREDIT—A nonrefundable and nontransferable credit is allowed beginning January 1, 2020 for qualified selling farmers. This credit must be approved by the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority. This credit must be claimed on the tax return in the first year that the credit was approved. You cannot claim more than the credit approved by the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority. The credit also cannot exceed $25,000 in any taxable year. Finally, the credit cannot exceed $100,000 over the lifetime of the selling farmers credit. Any unused credit in a taxable year may be carried forward up to five (5) years. If the credit is not utilized within the five (5) year period, the credit is lost. NEW WAY TO FILE—Kentucky is now offering a new way of filing your return free of charge.

Computer-Generated Returns and 2-D Bar Code New Way to File Kentucky is now offering a new way of filing your return free of charge. If you would like to fill out your Kentucky forms and schedules without software help or assistance you may use the new KY File website to file your current year return.This website is designed to be the simple electronic equivalent of a paper form. It will provide basic mathematical and error checks but unlike most software it does not ask about or explain tax situations. Your federal forms should be completed before accessing the new KY File website. You can access the KY File website at Filetaxes.ky.gov . Where to Get Forms Forms and instructions are available online from the Department of Revenue’s Website at www.revenue.ky.gov and at all KentuckyTaxpayer Service Centers. They may also be obtained by writing FORMS, Kentucky Department of Revenue, 501 High Street, Station 23B, Frankfort, KY 40601, or by calling (502) 564-3658. Most software packages produce a 2-D bar code. The Department of Revenue scans the bar code that contains all of the information needed to process your return. The bar code is printed in the upper right-hand corner of the return when you prepare your return using an approved software package. Last minute changes should be entered into the program and the entire return printed again so that the bar code also contains the correct information. This bar code should not be covered up or marked through. Using the bar code reduces data entry errors for the department and results in a faster refund for you. Address Change Check to be sure your software generates an acceptable form. A list of vendors whose software has been approved is posted on the Internet at www.revenue.ky.gov, the Department of Revenue’s Web site. Refund Inquiries If you move after you file your tax return, please notify the Kentucky Department of Revenue of your new address. This can be done by sending a change of address card (available at your local post office) to:Taxpayer Assistance Section, Kentucky Department of Revenue, P.O. Box 181, Station 56, Frankfort, KY 40602-0181. Notification can also be made to any Kentucky Taxpayer Service Center. A list of locations is included in your packet.

The following information from your return will be required: 5 the return. • The exact whole-dollar amount to be refunded to you. Information about electronically filed returns should be available within 72 hours of receipt. Information about other refund requests filed on paper will be available after the return has completed initial processing (approximately 12 weeks). Need a Copy of Your Tax Return? If you need a copy of your tax return, you must send your request in writing to: Taxpayer Assistance Section, Kentucky Department of Revenue, P.O. Box 181, Station 56, Frankfort, KY 406020181. Please include your name(s) as it appeared on your return, Social Security number(s), your complete mailing address, and a photo ID. To ensure confidentiality, all requests must include your signature. How Long Should Records be Kept? Keep a copy of your tax return, worksheets and records of all items appearing on it (such as Forms W-2 and 1099 or other receipts) until the statute of limitations runs out for that return. Usually, this is four years from the date the return was due or filed (with extensions), or the date the tax was paid, whichever is later. You should keep some records longer. For example, keep property records (including those on your home) as long as they are needed to figure the basis of the original or replacement property. Filing as an Injured Spouse on Your Federal Form 1040? Death of Military Personnel Killed in Line of Duty Kentucky does not recognize the federal injured spouse form. Income tax refunds may be withheld by the department if you owe money to the Kentucky Department of Revenue, another state agency or the Internal Revenue Service. KRS 141.019(k) exempts all income earned by soldiers killed in the line of duty from Kentucky tax for the year during which the death occurred and the year prior to the year during which the death occurred. Kentucky law requires the offset of the entire refund if a joint return is filed. If spouses want to keep their tax liabilities and/or refunds separate, each must file a separate tax form. If you choose to file separately on a combined return, for agencies other than the Department of Revenue, the refund will be apportioned between spouses, based on each spouse’s income. The indebted spouse’s refund will then be paid to the appropriate agency. The exemption applies to tax years beginning after December 31, 2001. The income exclusion applies to all income from all sources of the decedent, not just military income. The exclusion includes all federal and state death benefits payable to the estate or any beneficiaries. Death of a Taxpayer If a taxpayer died before filing a return for 2020, the taxpayer’s spouse or personal representative may have to file and sign a return for that taxpayer. A personal representative can be an executor, administrator or anyone who is in charge of the deceased taxpayer’s property. If the deceased taxpayer did not have to file a return but had tax withheld, a return must be filed to get a refund. The person who files the return should check the applicable deceased box at the top of the return. If your spouse died in 2020 and you did not remarry in 2020, you can file jointly or separately on a combined return. The return should show your spouse’s 2020 income before death and your income for all of 2020. You can also file jointly or separately on a combined return if your spouse died in 2021 before filing a 2020 return. Write “Filing as surviving spouse” in the area where you sign the return. If someone else is the personal representative, he or she must also sign. Amended returns may be filed for the year the soldier was killed in the line of duty and the year prior to the year of death. The amended returns must be filed within the statute of limitations period; four years from the due date, the extended due date or the date the tax was paid, whichever is later. If a combined return was filed, the exclusion would apply to the income reported in Column A or Column B of the Kentucky return attributable to the military member. If a joint return was filed, the income must be separated accordingly. Refunds will be issued in the names on the original return. Beneficiaries or estates that received death benefits that were included in a Kentucky return may file an amended return to request a refund of taxes paid on the benefit. The Department of Revenue will use the Veterans Administration definition for “in the line of duty,” which states that a soldier is in the line of duty when he or she is in active military service, whether on active duty or authorized leave; unless the death was the result of the person’s own willful misconduct. Income Tax Withholding for 2021 Yo u m a y e l e c t t o i n c r e a s e y o u r withholding by updating your K-4 with your employer. Or if you do not expect to have any tax liability for the current year or you meet the modified gross income requirement, you may be entitled to claim an exemption from withholding of Kentucky income tax. 6 2021 Estimated Tax Payments Individuals who can reasonably expect to have income of more than $5,000 from which no Kentucky income tax will be withheld may be required to make es timated tax payment s on Form 740-ES. However, if the amount of estimated tax is $ 500 or less, no estimated payments are required. Individuals who do not prepay at least 90% of the tax to be shown on the 2021 tax return, or 100% of the tax shown on the 2020 tax return, may be subject to a penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. For more information on calculating the penalty, please refer to Form 2210K. Prepayments for 2021 may be made through withholding, a credit forward of a 2020 overpayment or estimated tax installment payments. Estimated tax installments may now be made electronically at www.revenue. ky.gov, using Form EPAY, or when electronically filing your return using Form 8879-K, or through mailing a 740ES with payment. The instructions for Form 740-ES include a worksheet for calculating the amount of estimated tax due and for making installment payments. These forms may be obtained from the Kentucky Department of Revenue, P. O. Box 518, Frankfort, KY 40602-0518, or any Kentucky Taxpayer Service Center, or by calling (502) 564-3658. Return Adjustments If the Department of Revenue adjusts your return and you do not understand the adjustment, you may write to Taxpayer Assistance, Kentucky Department of Revenue, P.O. Box 181, Station 56, Frankfort, KY 40602-0181 or call (502) 564-4581. If you disagree with an adjustment made to your return, you may appeal that adjustment by submitting a written protest within 60 days of notification. Amended Returns If you discover that you omitted deductions or otherwise improperly prepared your return, you may obtain a refund by filing an amended return within four years of the due date of the original return. You are required to file an amended return to report omitted income. For 2017 and later use form 740 and check the box for amended. For 2016 and prior, use Form 740-X. You may obtain these forms by contacting a Kentucky Taxpayer Service Center or writing FORMS, Kentucky Department of Revenue, P. O. Box 518, Frankfort, KY 40602-0518. You may also download forms at www.revenue.ky.gov the Department of Revenue’s website. Federal Audit Adjustments Taxpayers who have received a final determination of an Internal Revenue Service audit must submit a copy to the department within 180 days of its conclusion. The information should be submitted to the Individual Governmental Program Section, Kentucky Department of Revenue, P.O. Box 1074, Station 68, Frankfort, KY 40602-1074. Confidentiality Kentuck y Revised Statute 131.190 requires the Department of Revenue to maintain strict confidentiality of all taxpayer records. No employee of the Department of Revenue may divulge any information regarding the tax returns, schedules or reports required to be filed. However, the Department of Revenue is not prohibited from providing evidence to or testifying in any court of law concerning official tax records. Also, Department of Revenue employees or any other person authorized to access confidential state information are prohibited from intentionally viewing such information without an official need to view. The department may provide official information on a confidential basis to the Internal Revenue Service or to any other governmental agency with which it has an exchange of information agreement whereby the department receives similar or useful information in return. Extension of Time to File Taxpayers who are unable to file a return by April 15 may request an extension. Taxpayers may elect to file this request electronically or by mailing the extension to the Department of Revenue on or before the due date of the return. The request must state a reasonable cause for the inability to file. Inability to pay is not an acceptable reason. Acceptable reasons include, but are not limited to, destruction of records by fire or flood and serious illness of the taxpayer. Extensions are limited to six months. A copy of the Kentucky extension request must be enclosed with the return. Individuals who receive a federal extension are not required to request a separate Kentucky extension. They can meet the requirements by enclosing a copy of the application for automatic federal extension to the Kentucky return. IRS extensions by e-file (by personal computer or a tax professional)—Enclose a copy of Form 4868 with the confirmation number in the lower righthand corner of the form or a copy of the electronic acknowledgment. Military Personnel—Kentucky residents who are in the military are often granted extensions for tax filings when serving outside the United States. Any extension granted for federal income tax purposes will be honored for Kentucky income tax purposes. Combat Zone Extension—Members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, or Public Health Service of the United States government who serve in an area designated as a combat zone by presidential proclamation shall not be required to file an income tax return and pay the taxes, which would otherwise become due during the period of service, until 12 months after the service is completed. Members of the National Guard or any branch of the Reserves called to active duty to serve in a combat zone are granted the same extension. Interest and Penalties—Interest at the “tax interest rate” applies to any income tax paid after the original due date of the return. If the amount of tax paid by the original due date is less than 75 percent of the tax due, a late payment penalty may be assessed (minimum penalty is $10). Interest and penalty charges can be avoided or reduced by sending payment with your extension request by the due date. If you wish to make a payment prior to the due date of your return when using the: 7 (1) Kentuck y Extension—Complete Section II, Kentuck y Extension Payment Voucher, of the Application for Extension of Time to File, Form 740EXT, and send with payment. Write “KY Income Tax—2020” and your Social Security number(s) on the face of the check. (2) Federal Automatic Extension—Make a copy of the lower portion of the federal Application for Automatic Extension, Form 4868, and send with payment.

Tangible personal property is to be reported on the Tangible Personal Property Tax Return, Form 62A500. The due date for this return is May 15. Do not mail this return with your income tax return; use a separate envelope. Kentucky State Treasury—Unclaimed Property Individuals—The Kentucky StateTreasury may be holding unclaimed property for you or your family.

Reciprocal States—Kentucky has reciprocal agreements with specific states. These agreements provide for taxpayers to be taxed by their state of residence, and not the state where income is earned.

Note: Wages which an S corporation pays to a shareholder-employee if the shareholder-employee is a “twenty (20) percent or greater” direct or indirect equity investor in the S corporation shall not be exempt under the reciprocity agreement. Virginia—commuting daily, salaries and wages Taxpayers who qualify for this exemption and have no other Kentucky taxable income should file Form 740-NP-R, Kentucky Income Tax Return, Nonresident–Reciprocal State, to obtain a refund. Also, nonresidents who qualify for the exemption should file Form 42A809, Certificate of Nonresidence, with their employer to exempt their future wages from Kentucky withholding. Gambling income and distributive share income (Schedule K-1) are not exempt under reciprocal agreements. This income is fully taxable. A complete return must be filed if filing requirements are met. Military Personnel—Nonresident military personnel with civilian jobs in Kentucky are required to report this income on Form 740-NP except residents of reciprocal states (see reciprocal states above). Any income from nonmilitary Kentucky sources is also taxable. 9 If the servicemember’s spouse qualifies for military spouse relief but his or her employer withholds income tax, he or she should file Form 740-NP Kentucky Individual Income Tax Nonresident or Part-Year Resident Return to request a refund of Kentucky income tax withheld. Please check the box labeled “Military Spouse”. Your income will not be reported as taxable on the Kentucky income tax return.

These nonresident returns allow taxpayers to specify which which income is subject to the state's taxes, and which is not.
About the Individual Income Tax
The IRS and most states collect a personal income tax, which is paid throughout the year via tax withholding or estimated income tax payments.
Most taxpayers are required to file a yearly income tax return in April to both the Internal Revenue Service and their state's revenue department, which will result in either a tax refund of excess withheld income or a tax payment if the withholding does not cover the taxpayer's entire liability. Every taxpayer's situation is different - please consult a CPA or licensed tax preparer to ensure that you are filing the correct tax forms!
