Dealing with the Kansas Department of Revenue

Dealing with the IRS is one thing, but negotiating with the Kansas Department of Revenue is something entirely different.  By a wide margin, the Kansas Department of Revenue is a much more involved process.

When you have unfiled tax returns, both the IRS and the Kansas Department of Revenue will eventually file those returns on your behalf and in each case their return will almost certainly show you owing more than you would if you filed them yourself.  The first thing to do in this situation is to obtain your tax transcripts, which show how much income you made in each of the past years.  We can usually get these from the IRS in around one business day; it takes several weeks and you have to pay a fee to get them from the Kansas Department of Revenue.

When you finally have the returns, to file them with the IRS you simply mail them in and the IRS automatically replaces your old return with your new one.  The Kansas Department of Revenue makes you fill out forms and pay fees in order to process these returns.
