This is a form-based product. KY File users should familiarize themselves with Kentucky forms by reading the instructions.
What you should know before you begin:

Users must have a valid SSN or ITIN to use this program.
This site can perform basic calculations but users will need to perform some calculations themselves.
This site supports state submissions but IRS prep and IRS e-file submissions need to be submitted to the IRS via another method.
Users that need to submit a copy of their federal return may include it as a .pdf file with their state submission.
Attached files should not be password protected or encrypted.
Tax years 2020 and 2019 are available for submission. Returns for tax years prior to 2019 will need to be submitted via another method.
Direct deposit of refunds are not available through KY File.
