Questions & Answers

What is the difference between Married Filing Jointly and Married Filing Separately for Kentucky purposes?

If you choose Married Filing Jointly on your Kentucky return, all of your income and your spouse's income will be added together for the purpose of calculating any tax owed and any credits or refunds due.

If you choose Married Filing Separately on your Kentucky return, your income and your spouse's income will be kept separate for the purpose of calculating any tax owed and any credits or refunds due.

If both you and your spouse had income, it will most likely be to your advantage to file Married Filing Separately on your Kentucky return. This filing status often results in lower total tax when both spouses have income.
