State Stat
In 2002, approximately 34% of Kentucky tax filers submitted their Kentucky state taxes electronically.
In 2003, that number jumped to 41%. So far this year, almost half, or over 780,000 of the 1.7 million Kentucky tax filers are now filing their taxes electronically.

Chart showing the growth of e-filing in Kentucky from 34 percent in 2002, 41 percent in 2003 and almost 50 percent in 2004.

Why the increase? Probably the biggest reason for the increase this year was the Department of Revenue's Free File Alliance program which allows for free electronic filing for those who qualify. However, filing electronically just keeps getting more convenient, whether you do it from home, the library, use a tax preparer or use the phone. Not only can it save you time, but you typically get your return a lot faster! Find out more on the Kentucky Department of Revenue Website:
