eFile.com makes it easy for you to e-file your IRS and Kansas 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 e-file a State Tax Return. This is not an eFile.com policy but an IRS and State Agency policy. Thus, technically you cannot e-File anywhere - not just eFile.com - a Kansas Tax Return without also e-filing the associated IRS Tax Return. But there is good news, please read on.

* 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. You can however prepare all 44 State Income Tax Returns on eFile.com if you have already e-Filed or filed your IRS return. Instructions on how you can ONLY prepare and file State Income Tax Return(s). Only on eFile.com can you prepare, file or e-file unlimited State Tax Returns for one low price and not pay for each State return like you would do on H&R Block® vs. TurboTax®. Dare to Compare Now.

Kansas Income Tax Extension

Kansas does not have a separate extension form. If you file Form 4868 requesting an six-month extension of time to file your federal tax return, you will 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 Form K-40V. Check the box on the voucher for extension payment. The extension payment must be postmarked on or before April 18, 2022. Any balance due remaining after April 18, 2022 will include interest. To avoid a separate penalty charge, you must have 90% of your tax be paid by April 18, 2022. In addition, any remaining balance due must be paid within the extended due date.

Instructions on how to eFile an IRS tax extension for free on eFile.com by April 18, 2022.
