Unlike many other states, Kansas does not allow municipalities or school districts to collect additional surtaxes on earned income on top of the Kansas income tax. However, 30 Kansas counties, 105 Kansas cities, and 400 Kansas townships impose a local intangibles tax on interest, dividends, and securities transactions (but not wages).

The surtaxes are generally uniform: county taxes is 0.75%, and city and township taxes are 2.25%. No city or township has a rate higher than 2.25%, and 36 have a lower rate, as low as 0.25%. These surtaxes cumulatively raised approximately $2.4 million in 2008.

Tax returns are due by April 17th of each year, with eFiled tax returns and electronic payments accepted and encouraged by the state. If you cannot pay your income tax in full, you are encouraged to submit a partial payment with your tax return and submit a request for a tax payment plan, which will include interest. Alternately, you can use a credit card to pay your tax debt, although a "service charge" of several percent will likely apply. For details about payment plans, call the Kansas Department of Revenue at 1-785-368-8222.

Kansas Income Tax Refund

As a perk if you choose to e-File your income tax return, Kansas will direct-deposit your income tax refund to a bank account of your choice as soon as two weeks after your tax return is filed. If you file a paper tax return, your refund will be mailed as a check and may take significantly longer to arrive. In both cases, you can check your refund's status online at any time through Kansas' tax refund portal by entering your Social Security Number.

Kansas State Income Tax Deductions

Income tax deductions are expenses that can be deducted from your gross pre-tax income before determining your taxable income.

Kansas Standard Deduction

The Kansas standard deduction is $3,000.00 for individuals and $9,000.00 for married couples filing jointly. The standard deduction may be chosen instead of filing an itemized deduction on your Kansas tax return.

Kansas Personal Exemptions

Kansas' personal income tax exemptions include a personal exemption of $2,250.00. You can deduct one single exemption from your gross income if you are responsible for supporting yourself financially.

Kansas Dependent Deduction

Kansas has a dependent exemption of $2,250.00. You may claim one dependent exemption for each of the children, relatives, or others who live with and are supported by you as described § 152 of the IRC (Internal Revenue Code).

Kansas Itemized Deductions

Kansas allows itemized deductions, and you can claim the same itemized deductions on your Kansas tax return as you do on your Federal tax return. You must choose between itemizing your deductions and choosing the Kansas standard deduction, so it's generally only worth itemizing your deductions if your itemized total is more then the Kansas and Federal standard deductions.
