Based on the recent Supreme Court Ruling, Comptroller of Treasury of Maryland v. Wynne, the Kansas Department of Revenue has advised the Kansas Legislature that they are now interpreting the Kansas Statute allowing credit for taxes paid to other states to include the Kansas City, Missouri earnings tax.
Because there are other counties and cities that impose their own separate income tax, the implications of this interpretation are much broader than the Kansas City, Missouri earnings tax. Earnings taxes paid to these other jurisdictions as well as income or earnings taxes paid to school districts in other states should be included as part of the Kansas credit. The credit can also be used on refund claims that fall within the 3 year statute of limitations.
If this change in law interpretation raises questions, concerns, or refund opportunities, the State and Local Tax (SALT) professionals at RubinBrown can assist in determining the impact that this change may have for you.
