131.170 Extension of time for filing reports and returns. The Department of Revenue may, when extension is not otherwise provided for, grant a <br>reasonable extension of time for filing reports or returns whenever, in its judgment, good <br>cause therefor exists. The department shall keep a record of such extensions. Except <br>where a taxpayer is abroad, no extension shall be granted for more than six (6) months, <br>and in no case for more than one (1) year. If any extension operates to postpone a tax <br>payment, interest at the tax interest rate as defined in KRS 131.010(6) shall be collected. <br>The department may condition the extension upon a bond sufficient to cover any tax and <br>penalty determined to be due. The department may, on request, permit a person to file a <br>tax return or report or pay tax on a date other than that prescribed by statute, or to change <br>the fiscal period covered by such return or report, if the variation will not ultimately effect <br>a reduction in revenue.
