Persons receiving non-employee compensation payments for services performed in Louisville and Jefferson County will be required to report and pay local tax on that income.

Create a 2nd client and copy all the 1099s that need to go to the county into that client, then make the state file and give it to the county.

Form 1099-MISC is only required to be filed with LMRC when contractors/payees earned their income in Louisville Metro, KY (Jefferson County).

The State Income field MUST have the amount earned in Louisville Metro. Enter the amount of compensation earned in Louisville Metro in the State Income field on the form. If the state income is left blank then the LMRC will assume that the amount earned in Louisville Metro, KY is equal to the Nonemployee Compensation, Box 7, 100% of total compensation was earned in Louisville Metro, KY.

There are two methods that meet the electronic filing requirement: eMINTS bulk upload method and eMINTS keying 1099 data method. CD submission does not meet the electronic filing requirement.

You will need to create a login through our online portal, eMINTS. Instructions for this can be found on our website at:

The preferred method of submitting 1099s is via the bulk upload functionality. You must have a logon with to the online portal to upload.

A waiver must be submitted if you are unable to file your 1099s electronically. Waivers are granted for up to one year. A justification and details of how you will submit documentation must be included. Allow 45 days from time of filing the waiver for notice of approval or notice of denial.

When using eMINTS an email confirmation will be sent when file is successfully uploaded.
