Tax filing season begins January 24, 2022

By Jill Midkiff

Frankfort, KY - The Kentucky Department of Revenue (DOR) is in the process of finalizing its tax filing processes and procedures, striving to make this the most efficient and safe filing season possible.

The IRS recently announced it will begin accepting electronic and paper federal individual income tax returns on Monday, Jan. 24, 2022. Kentucky will follow the same timeline and begin accepting and processing returns on the same date.

DOR will begin processing individual income tax returns on Monday, Feb. 7, 2022. Electronic individual income tax returns typically take two to three weeks to process with refunds issued shortly thereafter. Taxpayers may check the status of their refund by visiting refund.ky.gov and entering their Social Security number and exact dollar amount of the expected refund. Due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic public health recommended precautions, please note DOR has reduced the number of employees at our physical office locations. While DOR will make every effort to process returns as quickly and efficiently as possible, the processing of all refunds may be slightly delayed.

Carol Perkins: Store Bought

Previous Column: Give it UP

By Carol Perkins

A store-bought dress was a luxury when I was young. Few of us girls had plentiful clothes, but we protected what we had. We ironed our cotton summer dresses and pressed our wool skirts with a newspaper over the top. Occasionally, we sent them to the dry cleaners. My aunt Clarice could sew like a professional, so I remember several pieces she made. I was proud of them because they looked "store-bought."

I am a fan of "Project Runway." Watching it takes me back to when my mother (and other mothers) sought local seamstresses to sew for us. We could have more outfits because fabric and patterns were inexpensive. However, young girls longed for those outfits on mannequins in store windows. It was a sign of "money" to have a store-bought outfit, and most of us were materialistic. Teenagers usually are. Even those whose mothers could sew beautifully often longed for a department store dress.

My first encounter with an attitude about homemade clothing came from a woman sitting in a chair at a local beauty shop, and I was also there in the next booth (separated by a thin wall).

By Jordan Hensley, LRC

Frankfort, KY - Two budget-related bills cleared the House floor on Thursday. House Bill 1, on the executive branch budget, and House Bill 241, on the transportation budget, will now go before the Senate for consideration. The bills appropriate more than $110 billion.

This is the first time since 2018 that the Kentucky General Assembly is working to pass a biennium budget. Economic uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic led the legislature to pass two single-year budgets in 2020 and 2021.
