With the federal deficit topping a record $1 trillion in July, 2009, and rapidly on its way to doubling by this fall, the government desperately needs to squeeze out every tax dollar it can find. That could translate into more audits or at least a letter from the IRS politely asking you to refigure your taxes. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma, file)
TOPEKA, Kan. – February 1, 2011 – The Kansas Department of Revenue (KDOR) encourages residents to file 2010 Individual Income Tax Returns online with the new version of the easy-to-use Kansas WebFile (https://www.kansas.gov/webfile).
This year, the state is distributing a very limited number of paper income tax forms and booklets to save taxpayer dollars. Online filing through WebFile is secure, fast and paperless, and is the only method through which citizens can have their refunds directly deposited into their bank accounts. Direct deposit refunds may be received in less than one week, with online filers requesting paper checks receiving refunds up to 80 percent quicker than those filing traditional paper forms. In addition, paper filed returns do not qualify for direct deposit refunds.
WebFile was originally launched by the state in 2002. Last year, KDOR received 80 percent of the 1.5 million individual income tax returns electronically, up from 68 percent filed online in 2009.
The 2010 Individual Income Tax Return deadline is April 18, 2011. Save time and file online today at: https://www.kansas.gov/webfile.
