You may reduce or eliminate the amount of Kentucky use tax due by the amount of state sales tax paid to the out-of-state seller. The reduction may not exceed the amount of Kentucky use tax due on the purchase.
For example, if Georgia state sales tax of 4% is paid, only the additional 2% is due to Kentucky, or if Illinois state sales tax of 6.25% is paid, no additional Kentucky use tax is due.
Sales tax paid to a city, county or country cannot be used as a credit against the Kentucky use tax due.
