I'm new to KY (looking for work) and was told that If somebody works in Lexington, but does not live in Lexington that there's a city or county tax/fee they have to pay to work here. Is this correct? Thanks

Something I always try to do is ask somebody who is qualified to correctly answer the question. I'm sure you'll get many different opinions on here, but go to this site for an accurate answer: Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government Lexington, Kentucky : Revenue

There is an Occupational tax. If you work in Fayette County but live elsewhere, the tax is deducted from your paycheck.

There's also a small license fee involved if you open your own business in Fayette County.
