Submitting files

Create a 2nd client and copy all the W2s that need to go to the county into that client, then make the state file and give it to the county.

The file created can be submitted to the City for filing. The local withholding will be included in the KY file that is created regardless if there is state withholding..

To create a Kentucky Louisville Metro file report the local taxable wages and local income tax withheld on Form W-2 in Box 20 ''Locality Name''. If the employee is a resident enter the information in box 20 in the following format: ''LOU'' or ''LOU R''.
