Kentucky Updates Interest Rates for 2013


The Kentucky Department of Revenue has announced updated tax interest rates for 2013. These rates take effect on January 1, 2013.

As in 2012, all unpaid taxes will be subject in 2013 to a 6% interest rate, pursuant to Kentucky Revised Statutes (131.183).

If taxes are overpaid, the refund will be subject to a 2% interest rate "when interest is required to be paid." Interest starts to accrue "sixty days after the latest of:

  • The due date of the return;
  • The date the return was filed;
  • The date the tax was paid;
  • The last day prescribed by law for filing the return; or
  • The date an amended return claiming a refund is filed."
