LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Nearly 8,000 Kentucky taxpayers were double charged, the Kentucky Department of Revenue confirmed to the Lexington Herald-Leader.

The State told the Herald-Leader it was a glitch by private vendor Kentucky Interactive. It manages the agency’s online tax payment system.

Of the 7,881 taxpayers impacted, 5,355 were voided before being processed, according to the Herald-Leader.

The company is compensating anyone for overdraft fees they incurred.
