Kentucky Sales Tax

Please read the important Kentucky sales and use tax information, effective July 1, 2013, regarding tax you may owe directly to the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

  • The retailer is not required to and does not collect Kentucky sales or use tax.
  • The purchase may be subject to Kentucky use tax unless the purchase is exempt from taxation in Kentucky.
  • The purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet, by catalog, or by other remote means.
  • The Commonwealth of Kentucky requires Kentucky purchasers to report all purchases of tangible personal property or digital property that are not taxed by the retailer and pay use tax on those purchases unless exempt under Kentucky law. The tax may be reported and paid on the Kentucky individual income tax return or by filing a consumer use tax return with the Kentucky Department of Revenue.
