Kansas Taxes 2014

Kansas Tax Guide

Here we shall discuss the various aspects of the taxation structure that exists in the state of Kansas. Given below are the various categories considered for taxation in Kansas:

Kansas Income Tax

  • There are three basic tax brackets for single taxpayers considered for collecting income tax in Kansas.
  • For married people, joint returns can be filed where the same rates apply but the income brackets become double.
  • All information about state tax is available on the official website of the Kansas Department of Revenue.

Kansas Sales Tax

  • There was an increase to 6.3% in Kansas with effect from 1 July 2010.
  • There is an additional local sales tax in different cities and counties.
  • A special feature of the Kansas sales tax is that of a “food sales tax refund” which is the refund that a resident of Kansas would be eligible for if they were a resident for a year and had an annual salary of $35,000 or less.

Kansas Property Tax

  • Properties are valued for tax purposes at the market value as on 1st January each year. This assessment is done by “county appraisers” and collected by the county.
  • Certain motor vehicles, agricultural land, industrial and commercial machinery fall under the purview of self-assessment. The current market value can be obtained by the Division of Property Valuation.
  • Any individual or company who has personal property should file a personal property assessment from the 15th of March every year. Penalties will be charged against those who do not file their returns by this date.
  • The full tax amount or at least half is due by 20th December and the second half by 20th June of the next year. In case of a mortgage loan on property, a statement with tax information is received, the tax bill is sent to the respective mortgage banker and the tax is deducted form the escrow account.
  • Rebates on Kansas residents’ principle residences can be availed through the “homestead fund”. This is claimed by submitting the form K-4DH.

Kansas Estate and Inheritance Tax

  • Due to the nature of this tax, today inheritance and estate tax in the state of Kansas has been repealed. Any tax which was paid previously will be refunded.
  • Therefore it can be concluded that there is no stand-alone estate tax imposed in the residents of Kansas.
