Tax season brings surprises for Kentuckians

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- April 15 is the deadline to file tax returns, and in Kentucky many people are still wondering if they will end up owing money this year.

About two-thirds of households will see tax cuts and about 6 percent will pay more, according to the tax policy center.

In Kentucky, changes in tax laws means that some people can expect to pay more.

“Withholding should have been adjusted, that happened in the middle of this past year. In the past you’ve been able to take health insurance you paid out of pocket against your Kentucky income. That went away, so you can’t take that,” Rebecca Cohen, CPA and tax advisor at Carr Riggs and Ingram in Bowling Green.

If you haven’t finished filing taxes, Cohen recommends visiting a tax advisor to learn about more ways to possibly save.
