Angela-CopelandAngela CopelandPADUCAH, Ky. (8/17/14) — At the Kentucky Occupational License Association conference held earlier this month in Lexington, Ky., Paducah Revenue Manager Angela Copeland was installed as president of the association.

Copeland who has worked in the Paducah Finance Department for ten years says, “Being on the KOLA board the last two years, first as president elect and now as president, I have had the opportunity to become more knowledgeable about occupational license and network with other tax administrators instrumental in standardizing the laws pertaining to the collection of occupational license. Being on the board has allowed me to be on the Kentucky Secretary of State’s Task Force for developing a standardized form for the state of Kentucky.”

Copeland adds, “I am excited about bringing the KOLA conference to Paducah in 2015.”

Paducah Finance Director Jonathan Perkins says, “Over the past few years, Angela has worked tirelessly with KOLA, the Kentucky Secretary of State’s Office, and other cities and counties throughout the Commonwealth to standardize occupational license forms for local government use. In the near future, standardized forms will be available for use across the State. We know Angela’s hard work will pay future dividends by requiring future consistency in the way forms will be filed by the private sector.”

Mayor Gayle Kaler says, “The City of Paducah employs talented professionals who are active in their community and in their professional organizations. Being involved in professional organizations keeps our staff up to date on current issues in addition to allowing them to network with other professionals across the state.”

Mayor Kaler adds, “With leadership roles such as Angela’s role as KOLA president, Fire Chief Steve Kyle’s installation as president of the Kentucky Firefighter’s Association, and Police Chief Brandon Barnhill’s recent installation as third vice president of the Kentucky Association of Chiefs of Police, the rest of the state will look to Paducah as a knowledge-base. Plus, I am thrilled that annual conferences for these associations will be held in Paducah.”

KOLA provides educational and networking resources for professionals pertaining to the occupational license tax in Kentucky. The association also works to promote cooperation and understanding between local tax administrators, the Kentucky Revenue Cabinet, and the Internal Revenue Service.
