The tax year 2015 begins on January 19, 2016. The Form 740, Form 740-NP, Form 40A102, Form EPAY and supporting forms/schedules are accepted electronically through the Federal/State Modernized eFile (MeF) program.
A Form 40A102,Extension of Time to File Individual Income Tax Returns for Kentucky, may be electronically filed through the return due date to request an extension of time to file.
Electronic filing of the Form 740, Form 740-NP and Form 40A102 enables the taxpayer to take advantage of debiting the tax due amount from their financial institution at the time of filing the return. Taxpayers may also schedule payment of estimate tax at the time of filing their Form 740 and Form 740-NP.
Beginning in tax year 2015, electronic filing of the Form EPAY allows the taxpayer to make electronic payments of tax due or estimate payments at times other than when filing their individual income tax return or Form 40A102.
Check with your software company to determine what forms are supported by the software.
Payments by check/money order, other than for prior year or amended returns, should be accompanied with the Form 740-V, Kentucky Payment Voucher. Do not staple the Form 740-V to the payment. If you are filing your return electronically and making a payment by check/money order, a copy of the electronically filed return should not be included with the Form 740-V and payment.
Fraud Prevention and Detection
This filing season the Kentucky Department of Revenue, along with the IRS and many other state tax agencies, is requesting additional information for electronically filed tax returns. This is an additional effort to combat stolen-identity tax fraud and protect taxpayers and their tax refunds.
Driver license or state-issued identification card information will be requested when completing an electronic tax return. Providing this information is voluntary and will not cause the tax return to be rejected if it is not provided. However, providing the information may help to process the return more quickly.
