EDITOR:

I am writing in response to the Jan. 14 article "Fiscal court considers insurance premium tax to increase revenue."

I believe the following statement from the article is incorrect: "Though no action was taken, Clymer did propose that the group consider an 8 percent tax on all forms of insurance within the county, including health, home and automobile."

According to Kentucky Section 136.392, it appears that health and life insurance is exempt from Kentucky premium tax. In addition, a June 5, 2019 article from the Insurance Institute of Kentucky alludes to this as well: "However, local governments may not tax most types of health insurance or workers' compensation insurance."
