In Kentucky, Stripe Tax supports calculation and collection of sales tax.
When to register for tax collection
Use the Thresholds tab to get insights about your potential tax registration obligations in Kentucky. Stripe also notifies you with email and Dashboard alerts when you need to register to collect tax. Learn more about how the monitoring tool works.

Period: Previous or current year

We also support:
- Kentucky State and Local Communications Tax—for businesses selling video streaming to customers in Kentucky. This includes the Multi Channel Video Programming Excise Tax and Utility Gross Receipts License Tax. These taxes only apply when your business has physical presence in Kentucky. This means there isn’t a revenue threshold for when remote sellers need to pay this tax. Transactions for these taxes aren’t included in Stripe monitoring for Kentucky. The linked page is only accesible within the US or via a VPN.

How to report and file your taxes
Stripe provides reports of your completed tax transactions. To access these reports, go to the Registrations tab of the Dashboard.
The tax transaction data export provides a comprehensive and aggregated view of transactions by location, including a breakdown of individual tax amounts. Learn more about tax reporting exports.
Location reports offer a summary of transaction and refund data for specific US locations and align with Kentucky filing requirements.
- The location reports do not include transactions with the Kentucky State and Local Communications Tax as these are filed to the state using a different report. To see transactions with these taxes, you can use the exports.
You are responsible for filing and remitting your taxes to Kentucky. Stripe doesn’t file taxes on your behalf. For automating filing in the US, we recommend using TaxJar’s AutoFile solution.
