If you’ve ever had the misfortune of owing Kansas tax to the Kansas Department of Revenue, then you know that they can be a particularly ruthless organization when it comes to the collection of Kansas tax. The IRS is an extremely large organization, and whose collection procedures are constantly being reformed through Congress in ways that favor taxpayers. Not so the Kansas Department of Revenue. The organization, like the state, is small. The appeal and settlement options are not the same with for Kansas tax as they are with federal tax.
After working with several of the states, we can say with confidence that the Kansas Department of Revenue is one of the most difficult state collection departments to work with. The Kansas tax collection procedures are unclear and not available to the public. They are quick to file substitute returns for taxpayers, they add extra amounts to those returns, they require special paperwork and fees just to replace those returns, they use the Sheriff’s Department to serve tax warrants at people’s homes, and they publish the names and addresses of those who owe delinquent Kansas tax.
