I know for sure that you can use latex paint over Cover Stain (oil), and that should be true for KILZ oil; the label should tell you. I prefer oil primer on bare wood; it adheres better.
Many items like doors and door jambs are factory primed with very thin latex primer sprayed on. I've never had a problem with that unless I had to correct an imperfection, but hand applied primer works better if oil based in my experience.
Added: One problem I have had with latex primer is that it takes a couple weeks to fully cure. On wood, that can be a problem.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Bob Fleming,

Hello! My name is Katy and I am the social media coordinator for KILZ Primers and Paints. Yes, you can topcoat with a latex paint over an oil-based KILZ primer. We recommend lightly sanding between coats to ensure a smooth finish.
