Kansas.gov, is a self-supporting network - no tax dollars are used to run the network. Currently, the network contains over 100,000 pages of information and dozens of free services, all designed to help the public to interact more efficiently and easily with their state government. We offer businesses and individuals an alternative way to access information and to perform transactions with the state in a more convenient and cost effective way. A large majority of the information found on the network is free - this is possible due to the funds we receive from the few fee services, such as this application.

Drop-off stores do not have machines in the store so they do not need to be registered with the Kansas Drycleaning Program. Drop-off stores should still collect the environmental surcharge of 2.5% and submit the fees to the Kansas Department of Revenue.
