Kentucky Repeals State Income Tax

for active duty military:

Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear visited Fort Campbell Wednesday for a ceremonial signing of House Bill 3, which exempts all active-duty military personnel from the commonwealth's income tax. The exemption also includes members of the reserve and National Guard.

"This is meaningful to Kentucky," Beshear said after the ceremony. "This is our small way of saying thank you to soldiers for serving for Kentucky and the entire country."

After signing the bill, the governor said it was also a way to help Kentucky compete with Tennessee, which has no state income tax.
