Employee's Withholding Exemption Certificate
Employees are required to complete a withholding exemption certificate and file it with their employer. Kentucky has five types of exemption certificates. Form K-4 is the standard certificate and authorizes an employer to withhold Kentucky income tax based on the exemptions claimed by an employee. For more information on the state exemption certificates, see Withholding Taxes: Kentucky.
