Set Up Kansas Returns

This article applies to:Returns Central

Tell Us Where You Collect Tax

Add Kansas to the places where you collect tax. This tells AvaTax to calculate tax on Kansas transactions. See the Kansas Department of Revenue website for details about nexus, registration, and taxes in Kansas.

Before you add Kansas, there are two things you need to do:

Kansas has both sales and sellers use tax. Pick the right tax type based on the way your business is registered and the tax return you need to file.

When you select the tax type for Kansas:

  • Set the tax type to Sales tax only if you only file a Sales Tax return (KS ST-36)
  • Set the tax type to Sales or sellers use tax if you file a Sellers Use return (KS CT-9U)

"Sourcing" determines the location where a sale is taxed. Kansas is a destination-sourced state.

Add Your Company Locations

Kansas doesn't require location reporting on the returns. Add any physical locations you have in Kansas to enhance your company setup and track sales by location.

Schedule Your Returns

After you tell us where you collect tax and add locations, you're ready to schedule returns. Go to Returns in AvaTax to provide a funding power of attorney and schedule your returns

Your company name and taxpayer ID from Your Company Details show up on your returns. Make sure they match what’s on your registration information.

Use this info to schedule your returns. Keep in mind that the selections you made when you told us where you collect tax, any location codes you entered, and the forms you select are related and should tie together.

  • Select KS ST-36 Sales Tax to file sales tax
  • Select KS CT-9U Sellers Use to file retailers use tax
  • Select KS CT-10U Consumers Use to file consumers use tax

Create an online account with the Kansas Department of Revenue to confirm your filing frequency, file your returns, and pay your taxes.

Enter your Kansas registration ID in the correct format when you're scheduling the return. Example:  005-123456789-F01

Kansas sales and use tax returns must be filed electronically. Enter your login credentials when you schedule your returns.

Kansas sales and use tax returns must be filed by the 25th day of the month following the ending date of the return.
