Volunteer firefighters here in Kentucky could eventually see some extra cash with their income tax refunds. 

A bill filed in the state legislature would give each certified volunteer firefighter a $1,000 tax credit.

The money could be applied toward taxes due or a refund.

The bill's sponsor says the tax credit is just one small reward for those who volunteer to protect their neighbors.

If it passes, certified firefighters would be eligible for the tax credit beginning January 1st of next year.
