HOUSE BILL No. 2027
By Representative Powers
AN ACT relating to income taxation; allowing the deduction of long-term
care insurance premium costs; amending K.S.A. 1996 Supp. 79-32,117
and repealing the existing section.
Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Kansas:
Section 1. K.S.A. 1996 Supp. 79-32,117 is hereby amended to read
as follows: 79-32,117. (a) The Kansas adjusted gross income of an indi-
vidual means such individual's federal adjusted gross income for the tax-
able year, with the modifications specified in this section.
(b) There shall be added to federal adjusted gross income:
(i) Interest income less any related expenses directly incurred in the
purchase of state or political subdivision obligations, to the extent that
the same is not included in federal adjusted gross income, on obligations
of any state or political subdivision thereof, but to the extent that interest
income on obligations of this state or a political subdivision thereof issued
prior to January 1, 1988, is specifically exempt from income tax under the
laws of this state authorizing the issuance of such obligations, it shall be
excluded from computation of Kansas adjusted gross income whether or
not included in federal adjusted gross income. Interest income on obli-
gations of this state or a political subdivision thereof issued after Decem-
ber 31, 1987, shall be excluded from computation of Kansas adjusted
gross income whether or not included in federal adjusted gross income.
(ii) Taxes on or measured by income or fees or payments in lieu of
income taxes imposed by this state or any other taxing jurisdiction to the
extent deductible in determining federal adjusted gross income and not
credited against federal income tax. This paragraph shall not apply to taxes
imposed under the provisions of K.S.A. 79-1107 or 79-1108, and amend-
ments thereto, for privilege tax year 1995, and all such years thereafter.
(iii) The federal net operating loss deduction.
(iv) Federal income tax refunds received by the taxpayer if the de-
duction of the taxes being refunded resulted in a tax benefit for Kansas
income tax purposes during a prior taxable year. Such refunds shall be
included in income in the year actually received regardless of the method
of accounting used by the taxpayer. For purposes hereof, a tax benefit
shall be deemed to have resulted if the amount of the tax had been de-
ducted in determining income subject to a Kansas income tax for a prior
year regardless of the rate of taxation applied in such prior year to the
Kansas taxable income, but only that portion of the refund shall be in-
cluded as bears the same proportion to the total refund received as the
federal taxes deducted in the year to which such refund is attributable
bears to the total federal income taxes paid for such year. For purposes
of the foregoing sentence, federal taxes shall be considered to have been
deducted only to the extent such deduction does not reduce Kansas tax-
able income below zero.
(v) The amount of any depreciation deduction or business expense
deduction claimed on the taxpayer's federal income tax return for any
capital expenditure in making any building or facility accessible to the
handicapped, for which expenditure the taxpayer claimed the credit al-
lowed by K.S.A. 79-32,177, and amendments thereto.
(vi) Any amount of designated employee contributions picked up by
an employer pursuant to K.S.A. 12-5005, 20-2603, 74-4919 and 74-4965,

the same is claimed as the basis for the credit allowed pursuant to K.S.A.

(i) Interest or dividend income on obligations or securities of any
authority, commission or instrumentality of the United States and its pos-

of property having a higher adjusted basis for Kansas income tax purposes
than for federal income tax purposes on the date such property was sold
or disposed of in a transaction in which gain or loss was recognized for
purposes of federal income tax that does not exceed such difference in
basis, but if a gain is considered a long-term capital gain for federal in-
come tax purposes, the modification shall be limited to that portion of
such gain which is included in federal adjusted gross income.
(iv) The amount necessary to prevent the taxation under this act of
any annuity or other amount of income or gain which was properly in-
cluded in income or gain and was taxed under the laws of this state for a
taxable year prior to the effective date of this act, as amended, to the
