The Department of Revenue will begin processing 2022 state tax returns on February 6. The electronic individual tax returns usually process in four to six weeks. Individuals who have an annual income of less than $60,000 or any Kentucky state government employee, regardless of income, qualify for no-cost Kentucky electronic tax return preparation through the Free File Alliance. Those who want to use the service can contact the regional taxpayer service center nearest them. To get more information, you can go to revenue.ky.gov. The deadline for taxpayers to file their 2022 returns is Tuesday, April 18 due to a holiday in the District of Columbia.
