Kansas Income Taxes and KS State Tax Forms

efile Kansas tax return
Kansas
"The Sunflower State"

Kansas State Income Tax Return forms for Tax Year 2018 (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2018) can be e-Filed in conjunction with an IRS Income Tax Return until October 15, 2019. In January 2020, you can e-File Tax Year 2019.

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 - an Kansas Tax Return without also e-filing the associated IRS Tax Return. But there is good news, please read on.

Detailed instructions on how you can only prepare and mail in - not eFile - an Kansas 2018 Tax Return - here via eFile.com. However, you must download/print and sign the forms and mail them to the Tax Agency.

* 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.

Automatic Kansas Income 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 Form K-40V (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.

Kansas Tax Facts, Information

Kansas Tax Information and Contacts

KS Tax Type
Description
Kansas has a sales tax rate of 6.5%. Cities and counties in the state also have various local sales taxes.
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.
