General Information:  The quickest way to file your return is to file electronically.  Both the Form 740 and Form 740-NP are available for e-filing for TY2015. The 740-NP-R is not available for e-file. 

The quickest way to receive your refund is to select the direct deposit option.  Your refund will be deposited directly into your financial institution account.  The direct deposit option is available for the Form 740. 

Taxpayer's have a new option for tax year 2015 to have your refund loaded to a non-reloadable debit card.  The card is provided by the Kentucky Department of Revenue through Bank of America.  This option is available for paper and electronically filed returns.  The debit card is an available option for the Form 740, Form 740-EZ and Form 740-NP but not the Form 740-NP-R, Form 740-X or prior year returns.

Electronic payment of tax due and estimate tax is available when e-filing your Form 740 and Form 740-NP by debiting (ACH debit) your financial institution account.  You may also make an electronic payment (ACH debit) for tax due and/or estimate tax by electronically filing the Kentucky Electronic Payment Request Form - Form 42A740-EPAY throughout the tax year. 

New for tax year 2015:  If you are paying your current year tax due by check or money order, a Form 740-V must be enclosed with the check/money order.  The Form 740-V will be provided by your software if you owe additional tax or you can request a copy from the Department of Revenue.  

Note:  Do not attach the check/money order to the return or Form 740-V with staples, paper clips, tape or any other attachments as this will delay the processing of your return.  Enclose the check with the Form 740-V. 

Need an extension of time to file your individual income tax return?  The Form 40A102 is available for e-filing through 4/18/2016 to request a 6 month extension of time to file. Direct debit of tax due is available for Form 40A102.The extension does not extend the time to pay your tax.
