June 5, 2011
Over 86,000 filings completed so far!
TOPEKA, Kan. – April 1, 2011 – The 2010 Individual Income Tax Return deadline is April 18, 2011. The Kansas Department of Revenue encourages residents to file 2010 Individual Income Tax Returns online with the new version of the easy-to-use Kansas WebFile (https://www.kansas.gov/webfile).
“Our goal is to make it easy and inexpensive for people to file their state tax returns online,” said Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan. “Kansas WebFile is not only free and simple to use, but people who have their refunds deposited electronically will receive their money much faster than a paper check.”
This year, the state is distributing a limited number of paper income tax forms and booklets to save taxpayer dollars. Online filing through WebFile is secure, fast and paperless. It also allows citizens to have their refunds directly deposited in their bank accounts much quicker than they would receive a paper check. Direct deposit refunds may be received in less than a week, and online filers requesting paper check refunds receive theirs up to 80 percent sooner than paper filers. In addition, paper filed returns do not qualify for direct deposit refunds.
The state originally launched WebFile in 2002. Last year, the Revenue Department received 80 percent of the 1.5 million individual income tax returns electronically, up from 68 percent filed online in 2009.
