How can we help?

New company registration in Kentucky

Income tax withholding

Register online with the Kentucky Department of Revenue. Once on the page, select Click here to create one. We recommend that you review the One Stop Overview for guidance on the registration process. You should receive your account number and deposit schedule in 1-2 days after registering online. Need help? Call the agency at (502) 564-3306.

Unemployment tax

Register online with the Kentucky Office of Employment and Training to get your KEIN account number. When the electronic registration process asks you if you will be filing electronically or using a Third Party Administrator, answer "Yes," but enter your own company's mailing address so you stay informed of changes to your account.

The Kentucky account number ("KEIN") should include nine digits (Example: 12 123456 1), but some accounts include an alpha character or letter between the eighth and the ninth digit (Example: 12 123456A 1). If the letter you received from the agency only has eight digits, you will need to call the agency at (502) 564-2272 to obtain the ninth digit in order to enter the information correctly in Gusto.

Need additional help? Visit the agency website or give them a call at (502) 564-2272.

Louisville Metro Revenue Commission

Beginning July 2018, the Louisville Metro Revenue Commission began sending out letters to employers containing a ten digit notice ID number and instructions for creating an 'eMINTS logon'.

Gusto needs to be granted access to your account so that we can file and pay the tax on your behalf. To grant Gusto access:

  1. Create a master username on the main eMINTS page.
  2. Sign in to your account.
  3. Click the Give Access to a Third Party link. 
  4. When prompted, enter 95896 as Gusto's Access Code and [email protected] as Gusto's email.
    • This allows Gusto to link our online eMINTS to your account.
