FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Senate has approved a bill
that would give active duty soldiers a state income tax break.
The legislation would set up a tax rebate fund dedicated to
active duty soldiers. It also calls for appropriating $17 million
toward tax rebates on military income for active duty military
personnel. It also applies to National Guard and reserve troops
called to active duty.
The Senate approved the measure without opposition and it now
heads to the House for consideration. A similar proposal stalled in
the General Assembly last year.
A separate plan aimed at helping to administer economic
development projects around Fort Knox also won approval and heads
to the House for consideration.
