The Taxation Division of the Kansas Department of Revenue is responsible for administering and enforcing a variety of Kansas personal and business taxes.
If you are unable to pay your state tax debt in full at the time it is due, you may be eligible to enter into a payment plan to pay off your tax debt over time. In order to request a payment plan, you must fill out and submit Form CM-15, Payment Plan Request for INDIVIDUAL INCOME to the Department of Revenue. You can fax Form CM-15 to the Collections Department at 1-785-291-3616 or email it to [email protected].
If the Department grants your request for a payment plan, you will receive a notice by mail within 14 days of the Department processing your request. At that point, you must make payments either by check or money order, by electronic funds transfer through your bank account, by credit card, or by wage assignment through your employer.
Furthermore, if the Department grants your request for a payment plan, you must continue to file all tax returns as they become due, and make all other required tax payments and estimated tax payments on time. Any refunds that you are owed by the state will be applied to your outstanding tax debt.
Interest and penalties will continue to accrue as you make payments toward your tax debt. There is a $10.00 administration fee charged for all payment plans that exceed 90 days. Additionally, if your payment plan exceeds six months, or if the statute of limitations for collecting your tax debt is due to expire during your payment plan, the Department of Revenue will file a tax warrant with the District Court in order to protect the state’s interest.
If you cannot pay your state tax debt in full, either because there is a serious doubt as to your tax debt’s collectability, or your tax debt’s validity, you can request that the Taxation Division reduce the amount that you owe in state taxes. You should follow the Petition for Abatement Instructions, which includes a checklist of all documents and information that you need to submit a petition for abatement to the Taxation Division, as well as the address to which these documents should be submitted.
In completing a Petition for Abatement, you must include an offer as to the lump sum amount of tax debt that you can pay, as well as the date on which you can make the payment. If your Petition for Abatement is based on your insolvency or an inability to pay, then you also must complete and include a Financial Information Statement. This form asks for detailed information about your income, assets, and debts, which gives the Taxation Division a more complete picture of your financial situation.
Additionally, if you are asking the Taxation Division to accept original income tax returns instead of final assessments or additional information, such as other states’ tax returns, after the deadline to submit additional information, you also must complete and submit a Validity of Debt Petition for Abatement.
The Department of Revenue has a Taxpayer Advocate, whose job is to help consumers resolve state tax disputes when they have exhausted all other avenues of resolution. You can contact the Taxpayer Advocate via email at [email protected].
