Summary Retain original provisions; redefine "remote worker" to include an individual who accepts employment with a Kentucky-based employer upon relocating to this state; add that the wage assessment shall continue if the remote worker begins employment with the Kentucky-based company; increase salary requirements of the remote worker to $50,000, and establish that the Commonwealth has the option to cease the wage assessment for the remote worker after five years for a sum equal to eight times the amount of the previous taxable year's wage assessment for that remote worker.
