TAX DAY 15FRANKFORT, Ky. (3/15/13) – The Kentucky Department of Revenue reminds everyone that income taxes are due Monday, April 15, 2013. New this year is “Where’s My Refund,” an online resource that allows taxpayers to check the status of their 2012 individual income tax refund.
Taxpayers can log on to and click on Where’s My Refund to obtain the most current and up-to-date information about their 2012 refund. A primary social security number and the exact amount of the refund are needed to retrieve this information.
Filing electronically continues to grow in popularity with nearly 78 percent of individual filers taking advantage of e-filing with Department of Revenue for tax year 2011. For tax year 2012, already more than 921,000 Kentuckians have filed their individual income tax returns. Nearly 852,000 of those have been e-filed resulting in 93 percent of individual filers taking advantage of filing online.
The Department of Revenue typically processes electronic returns within 7 to 10 days, while the average time for a refund to be issued on filed paper returns is 4 to 6 weeks. E-filing is the fastest, safest and easiest way for individuals and tax preparers to file returns. Through e-filing, taxpayers can choose to have refunds deposited directly into their bank account or have payments debited if they owe.
Additionally, more than one million Kentucky taxpayers may be eligible to prepare and file their taxes electronically at no cost thanks to a public-private partnership called the Free File Alliance. Income limits apply. To find out if you qualify, visit
The Department of Revenue offers free tax preparation help and e-filing for Kentuckians who generally make $51,000 or less. Taxpayers can take advantage of this service at any of the 10 taxpayer assistance centers located throughout the state. Both state and federal individual income tax forms are prepared. Appointments are required for tax preparation assistance. To find locations and telephone numbers for each taxpayer service center, go to
All Kentucky income tax forms are available at or by calling 502-564-3658. Forms are also available at any of the ten taxpayer assistance offices.
