10 AN ACT relating to income taxation; allowing the deduction of long-term 11 care insurance premium costs; amending K.S.A. 1996 Supp. 79-32,117 12 and repealing the existing section. 13 14 Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Kansas: 15 Section 1. K.S.A. 1996 Supp. 79-32,117 is hereby amended to read 16 as follows: 79-32,117. (a) The Kansas adjusted gross income of an indi- 17 vidual means such individual's federal adjusted gross income for the tax- 18 able year, with the modifications specified in this section. 19 (b) There shall be added to federal adjusted gross income: 20 (i) Interest income less any related expenses directly incurred in the 21 purchase of state or political subdivision obligations, to the extent that 22 the same is not included in federal adjusted gross income, on obligations 23 of any state or political subdivision thereof, but to the extent that interest 24 income on obligations of this state or a political subdivision thereof issued 25 prior to January 1, 1988, is specifically exempt from income tax under the 26 laws of this state authorizing the issuance of such obligations, it shall be 27 excluded from computation of Kansas adjusted gross income whether or 28 not included in federal adjusted gross income. Interest income on obli- 29 gations of this state or a political subdivision thereof issued after Decem- 30 ber 31, 1987, shall be excluded from computation of Kansas adjusted 31 gross income whether or not included in federal adjusted gross income. 32 (ii) Taxes on or measured by income or fees or payments in lieu of 33 income taxes imposed by this state or any other taxing jurisdiction to the 34 extent deductible in determining federal adjusted gross income and not 35 credited against federal income tax. This paragraph shall not apply to taxes 36 imposed under the provisions of K.S.A. 79-1107 or 79-1108, and amend- 37 ments thereto, for privilege tax year 1995, and all such years thereafter. 38 (iii) The federal net operating loss deduction. 39 (iv) Federal income tax refunds received by the taxpayer if the de- 40 duction of the taxes being refunded resulted in a tax benefit for Kansas 41 income tax purposes during a prior taxable year. Such refunds shall be 42 included in income in the year actually received regardless of the method 43 of accounting used by the taxpayer. For purposes hereof, a tax benefit HB 2420

 1  shall be deemed to have resulted if the amount of the tax had been de-
 2  ducted in determining income subject to a Kansas income tax for a prior
 3  year regardless of the rate of taxation applied in such prior year to the
 4  Kansas taxable income, but only that portion of the refund shall be in-
 5  cluded as bears the same proportion to the total refund received as the
 6  federal taxes deducted in the year to which such refund is attributable
 7  bears to the total federal income taxes paid for such year. For purposes
 8  of the foregoing sentence, federal taxes shall be considered to have been
 9  deducted only to the extent such deduction does not reduce Kansas tax-
10  able income below zero.
11    (v)  The amount of any depreciation deduction or business expense
12  deduction claimed on the taxpayer's federal income tax return for any
13  capital expenditure in making any building or facility accessible to the
14  handicapped, for which expenditure the taxpayer claimed the credit al-
15  lowed by K.S.A. 79-32,177, and amendments thereto.
16    (vi)  Any amount of designated employee contributions picked up by
17  an employer pursuant to K.S.A. 12-5005, 20-2603, 74-4919 and 74-4965,
18  and amendments to such sections.
19    (vii)  The amount of any charitable contribution made to the extent
20  the same is claimed as the basis for the credit allowed pursuant to K.S.A.
21  1996 Supp. 79-32,196, and amendments thereto.

24  authority, commission or instrumentality of the United States and its pos-
25  sessions less any related expenses directly incurred in the purchase of

27  gross income but exempt from state income taxes under the laws of the
28  United States.

33  of property having a higher adjusted basis for Kansas income tax purposes
34  than for federal income tax purposes on the date such property was sold
35  or disposed of in a transaction in which gain or loss was recognized for
36  purposes of federal income tax that does not exceed such difference in
37  basis, but if a gain is considered a long-term capital gain for federal in-
38  come tax purposes, the modification shall be limited to that portion of
39  such gain which is included in federal adjusted gross income.
