The Kentucky Department of Revenue (DOR) has been empowered to publish more guidance on various complex tax issues with the amendment of KRS 131.130(8). This endeavor was accomplished due to a joint effort between the DOR and the Kentucky Society of CPAs (KyCPA) which resulted in the passage of House Bill 245 during the 2017 legislative session. The publication of guidance will improve transparency while providing direction on some of the most common, yet complicated, tax issues.
In the coming weeks, a new page will be added to the DOR website where the guidance will be published. This page will have many useful links and an email subscription sign up option where you can opt to receive notification when new guidance is published. The DOR will continue to issue some guidance via the administrative regulation process. The DOR invites the public to submit guidance topic suggestions to the Office of Tax Policy and Regulation at DORtaxpolicy@ky.gov.
