Kentucky Sales Tax Extension for Storm Victims

  • Mar 14, 2012 | Will Frei

President Obama issued a major disaster declaration for 21 Kentucky counties devastated by the storms of Feb. 29 - Mar. 2, 2012. The Kentucky Department of Revenue announced that they expect taxpayers affected by the disaster to continue to file sales tax returns on the regular due dates.

However, the Department also stated that Thirty-day extensions are available on request and that taxpayers who lost their returns should contact the Division of Sales and Use Tax at 502-564-5170. Furthermore, the Department reminds Kentucky taxpayers that sales and use tax forms are not available online or by fax.

This approach differs from the one taken by Kansas after a tornado ravaged Harveyville, when Kansas waived late filing fees for those affected by the tornado, without requiring extension requests.
