Power of Attorney

Kansas requires a Power of Attorney (POA) for Avalara to resolve notices for you.

To submit a POA:

  1. Obtain and complete a Kansas Department of Revenue Power of Attorney form
  2. Submit the completed POA form to the Kansas Department of Revenue. Processing takes 3 - 5 business days.
  3. Send the completed POA form and notice to us by submitting a case. Processing takes about 6 - 8 weeks.

After we have a POA on file, you don't have to submit another one unless something has changed.

Kansas also requires your:

  • FEIN
  • Company name
  • Company address
  • Telephone or fax number

Common Issues

These are some common notice issues to resolve for Kansas. See Manage Tax Notices for additional details about resolving notice issues.

Issue Action
Unsupported credits Kansas is stating that enough tax wasn't collected to support the credit being taken on the return. The Kansas lookback period is three years. If Avalara can't locate the corresponding tax transaction at issue, you're required to provide this documentation to Kansas.
Tax Type/form discrepancy

Kansas is stating that the expected returns haven't been filed.

These are the forms and corresponding tax types:

  • KS CT-10U (Consumers Use)

  • KS ST-36 (Sales Long)

  • KS CT-9U (Retailers Compensation Use )

Review tax permits, business registration, and tax return forms. Match the state tax type to the way your business is registered and the tax return you need to file. If you're unsure, contact the state department of revenue. Tax types are selected when you tell AvaTax where you collect tax. Also, make sure the correct return is scheduled.
