Kentucky recently released its 2020 Specifications for Electronic Submission of 1099 and W2G forms, adding specification details for filing forms 1099-NEC with the state. These specifications detail how to electronically submit forms 1099 and W2G to the state of Kentucky including the record formats. The document was updated with dates for the 2020 tax year.

The only notable change to this document is the addition of support for the 1099-NEC, a form revived by the IRS starting in tax year 2020. No other substantive changes were made to the document.
