Kansas: AutoFiling the correct tax type

Kansas has both a Retailer's Compensating Use Tax and a Sales Tax. 

The rates for both taxes are the same, but according to the state's website:

  • In state sellers should file the Sales Tax return (This account has a prefix of 004.)
  • Out of state sellers should file the Retailer's Compensating Use Tax return (This account has a prefix of 005.)

When sellers first register with the state, the DOR sets up both account types in your e-file account, and each account will have a different account prefix and access code.

  • Although the state provides setup for both account types, you'll need to take care to file under the correct account type for your registration. 
  • If you file under the incorrect account type, you'll receive a letter from the state notifying you that you are filing incorrectly..

TaxJar AutoFiles in Kansas based on the account prefix number you provide when you complete the AutoFile enrollment form.

  • In state sellers should enroll in AutoFile using the details for the account with a prefix of 004.
