The Form 740, Form 740-NP and supporting forms/schedules are accepted electronically through the Federal/State Modernized eFile (MeF) program.
A Form 40A102,Extension of Time to File Individual Income Tax Returns for Kentucky, may be electronically filed through the return due date to request an extension of time to file.
Electronic filing of the Form 740, Form 740-NP and Form 40A102 enables the taxpayer to take advantage of debiting the tax due amount from their financial institution. Taxpayers may schedule a debit of estimate tax payments at the time of filing their Form 740 and Form 740-NP.
Beginning in tax year 2015, electronic filing of Form EPAY allows the taxpayer to make debit payments at times other than when filing their individual income tax return or Form 40A102.
Check with your software company to determine what forms are supported by the software.
Payments by check/money order, other than for prior year or amended returns, should be accompanied with the Form 740-V, Kentucky Payment Voucher. Do not staple the Form 740-V to the payment. If you are filing your return electronically and making a payment by check/money order, a copy of the electronically filed return should not be included with the Form 740-V and payment.
