Your Kansas Income Tax Return

Efile.com makes it easy for you to e-file your state tax return (e.g resident, nonresident, or part-year resident returns). However, the IRS and the respective state tax agencies require you to e-file a federal income tax return at the same time you efile a state tax return. This is not an efile.com policy but an IRS and state agency policy. Many taxpayers have asked how they can only prepare and file a state income tax return. The efile.com tax application lets you prepare a state tax return only, however you cannot efile the state return upon completion. Instead, you will have to download the completed state tax return as a PDF file, print it, sign it, and mail it to the respective state - the address is on the PDF file. Find more detailed instructions on how to prepare and file a state only return on efile.com.

* Due to IRS and state tax agency tax data sharing and validation requirements, you can only e-file a state income tax return while also e-filing a federal income tax return. This is not an efile.com created policy, but all online tax web sites have to adhere to this IRS/state issued tax data sharing policy. Find out how to only prepare and file a state tax return. Only on efile.com can you prepare and efile unlimited state tax returns for one low price. Most other sites charge a per state price.

Kansas efile Error Codes

If your Kansas state return was rejected by the state and not efile.com, you will receive an error reject code. If you prepared and efiled your return on efile.com, we will provide you with an explanation of how to correct the error on your return. You may then resubmit your state return at no additional charge until it is accepted by the state. View a list of all Kansas State efile Income Tax Return Error Reject Codes.

How To File a Kansas Tax Extension

Kansas does not have a separate extension form. If you file Form 4868 requesting an automatic six-month extension of time to file your federal tax return, you will automatically receive a six-month extension of time to file your Kansas state return (not to pay KS taxes owed). A copy of form 4868 must be enclosed with your Kansas return.

To make an extension payment on your Kansas income tax, use the Kansas Payment Voucher (K-40V). Check the box on the voucher for extension payment. The extension payment must be postmarked on or before April 15, 2019. Any balance due remaining after April 15, 2019 will include interest. To avoid a separate penalty charge, you must have 90% of your tax be paid by April 15, 2019. In addition, any remaining balance due must be paid within the extended due date.

Important: Do you need to prepare and e-file an IRS or federal tax extension as well?

How to File A Kansas Tax Amendment

Amended Kansas tax returns can only be mailed; they cannot be efiled. Learn how to file a Kansas tax amendment.

Important Reminder! If you are filing a Kansas tax amendment, you may need to file a federal tax amendment as well.

More information on Kansas Sales Tax

KS Personal Property Tax

The state's personal property tax values vary based on county.

Homes, commercial real property, and certain other property types are appraised at "market value" as of the first day of January each year. Agricultural land, certain motor vehicles, and commercial and industrial machinery/equipment are appraised using a value-assessed method.

A rebate on a portion of property taxes paid on a Kansas resident's main personal property is available through the homestead refund. Qualified residents can claim the refund by filing Form K-40H.

Odd Kansas Tax Fact

Kansas requires drug dealers possessing marijuana and/or other controlled substances to pay the state's drug tax. The state defines a drug dealer as

  • Anyone who produces, transports, manufactures, imports, or ships illegal substances into the state OR
  • Anyone who possesses more than 28 grams of marijuana (processed or marijuana plants), one gram of a controlled substance, or 10 or more dosage units of a controlled substance.

In exchange for the tax payment, drug dealers receive drug tax stamps, which must be attached to the substances and are valid for three months. Though the stamps do not make the possession of these drugs legal, having drugs without stamps or expired stamps may result in civil or criminal penalties. These penalties may include seizure of property or fines.

Kansas State Tax Agency Contacts

You can contact the Kansas Department of Revenue at 785-368-8222.
