||2012 Test Returns
While the primary method of transmitting returns in tax year 2012 will be through the Modernized Electronic Filing system (MeF), Kentucky has elected to follow the IRS's lead and allow filing through the legacy system if the IRS determines an emergency situation has occurred and the IRS contingency plan is being implemented. In order to participate in the contingency plan, you will need to test through legacy in addition to MeF. The same tests will be used for both MeF and legacy.
