State Tax Collectors Working Overtime

Frankfort, KY – State tax collectors in Kentucky are working overtime this
year. Officials say collection of delinquent taxes has increased
about thirty percent for the year, with about 15 million dollars
more collected than last year.

The acting Director of the Finance Cabinet says its the
best six months for tax collection ever in the state. Officals
say they have already taken in 68 million dollars in
delinquent taxes during the first six months of the year.

Administration officials say the increase in collections was
caused by changes in fees, technological improvements,
and getting tough on delinquents.
