Tax Relief Act


The Changes and Impacts the Kentucky Taxation Laws Will Have on Your Business.


A law was passed that could affect your business. The Kentucky Tax Modernization Act effects state taxes due for all C-Corporations and pass-through entities (S-Corporations, LLCs, and LLPs). The stipulations in how all of the above-mentioned entities are taxed are:

1) They will now be taxed as regular corporations by the state of Kentucky;
2) Must now pay tax on the entity level, with credits taken by the individuals on their Kentucky individual tax return (if applicable);
3) Will pay estimated taxes if the expected annual Kentucky tax liability is greater than $5000;
4) The corporate income tax in Kentucky will no longer be based solely on taxable income;
5) Every entity now defined as a corporation, even if the entity recognizes a taxable loss, will pay some tax for the privilege of doing business in Kentucky; and
6) The tax will now be based on the greater of the following questions:

  • The regular corporate income tax (with a maximum rate of 7%);
  • The lesser of a gross receipts tax at $.095/$100 of gross receipts, and a gross profits tax at $0.75/$100 of gross profits; and

    $175 minimum tax to be paid.

  • Due to these complicated requirements, we recommend for you to contact us and we will answer any questions you may have. You can reach us with a click or a tap of the 'Close' button to return and use the Main Menu to access the 'Contact' feature. We will help you to review your financial position to minimize the taxes that your company will need to pay.


    Also, ask us about the Federal Personal Income Tax as it relates to the Family Tax Relief Act and the Jobs Creation Act.
