Kentucky Tax-Exempt Income

All residents of Kentucky that are active duty members of the Armed Forces, members of the reserves, and members of the National Guard do not have to pay state income tax on their military earnings. When filing a return, all military pay should be excluded. If that’s the only source of income, the taxpayer does not have to file a state return.

Additionally, social security income is exempt from state income tax along with retirement income from government worker retirement systems within the state. All pensions and annuities are also not taxable up to $41,110. Lastly, interest accrued on treasury notes, bills and bonds issued by the federal government are exempt.
