Kentucky sales tax compliance is fairly simple and straight-forward in comparison to other states’ tax laws. Kentucky has a state-level sales tax rate of 6%, and the state does not offer reduced rates. Due to this, businesses can expect to collect and remit a 6% sales tax rate on all taxable sales they make.
Kentucky Sales Tax
There are three filing frequencies at which taxpayers file their tax returns which will be determined by the Kentucky Department of Revenue at the time of registration. These three frequencies are monthly, quarterly, and annually. Kentucky sales tax compliance requires all taxpayers to file by the 20th of the following reporting period, no matter their filing frequency. If the return due date falls on a weekend or national holiday, then the correct due date will get pushed back to the next business day.
