It’s Almost Time To File Your Tax Returns….with certain conditions

For most US and KY residents, it’s time to think about filing your tax return – however there are several reasons for waiting a while!

If you have Mutual Funds or REIT’s, you are likely to receive a corrected 1099 in mid March (or a little later)– so save both yourself and your preparer the hassle and extra cost of having to prepare and file an amended return in late March or April  - wait until after mid-March before filing – PLEASE!!!

The IRS and Kentucky both prefer electronic tax returns. Electronic returns with refunds can often get cleared and a check issued (via direct deposit) with 8-10 days. In any case, taxes are not due until April 15, regardless when you file. Paper returns take longer and amended returns may take up to six months for final processing.

Check out detailed guidance under the FAQS and HINTS tabs.

Note that preparing returns takes a bit longer this season, due to extended intake/information requirements as well as many significant changes in the federal and state tax laws.

 

NEED HELP?

Tax-Aide offices are open February 1 - April 15.  Tax-Aide does not have copies of your return – see below for further information.

For assistance in the interim, please contact your local IRS or State Department of Revenue office.  Their address and phone numbers are listed in the blue pages of the phone book.

Taxpayer Advocate Service operates independently of all other IRS Offices and reports directly to Congress. It protects taxpayers’ rights and ensures that all taxpayers are treated fairly, and that they know and understand their rights under the IRS’s Taxpayer Bill of Rights.  For additional information, go to taxpayeradvocate.irs.gov or contact the Louisville office at 502-912-5050 or 877-777-4778.


Where’s my KY Refund?

If several weeks have passed since you filed your KY return and you haven’t received your refund, you can check about the status in any of three ways:

www.revenue.ky.gov

(502) 564-1600 (Automated Line)
