Americans are preparing to file their taxes by the newly extended May 15 deadline, and upwards of 70% are expecting a refund (according to IRS data). As part of the annual season of tax preparation, SmartAsset released its study on the places where people receive the largest tax refunds, as well as the places where people owe the most. According to the study, tax refunds in McCreary County rank among the largest in Kentucky.
To determine the counties that received the highest average tax refunds in Kentucky, the study divided the total amount of money refunded to residents by the IRS by the number of refunds distributed in each county. For a more detailed look at how places in Kentucky compared, check out the table below.
