New! Tax Reform Law

Kansas collapsed the current three-bracket structure for individual state income taxes (3.5, 6.25 and 6.45 percent respectively) into a two-bracket system. The new tax rates implemented in FY 2013 through 2018 are shown below: 


Married Filing Joint: TY2013 TY2014 TY2015 TY2016 TY2017 TY2018
$0-$30,000 3.0% 2.7% 2.7% 2.7% 2.3% 2.6%
$30,001 and over 4.9% 4.8% 4.6% 4.6% 4.6% 4.6%


Single, Head of Household
or Married Filing Separate:
TY2013 TY2014 TY2015 TY2016 TY2017 TY2018
$0-$15,000 3.0% 2.7% 2.7% 2.7% 2.7% 2.6%
$15,001 and over 4.9% 4.8% 4.6% 4.6% 4.6% 3.9%

The reform also increases the standard deduction amount for single head-of-household filers from $4,500 to $5,500 and for married taxpayers filing jointly from $6,000 to $7,500. 

There were a number of changes enacted to Kansas itemized deductions. The deduction for certain gambling losses is repealed after tax year 2013. Most other itemized deductions (except the deduction for charitable contributions, which is fully retained) are reduced by 30 percent in tax year 2013 and 35 percent in tax year 2014. Effective for tax year 2015, the Kansas itemized deductions shall consist only of charitable contributions, 50 percent of residential mortgage interest and 50 percent of property tax paid.
