TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Residents of Kansas counties hit hard by
last weekend's violent storms are getting some guidance and help on
replacing lost documents and filing their income taxes.

Gov. Sam Brownback said Friday the state is waiving the fees to replace birth and marriage certificates, driver's licenses, non-driver ID cards and the titles for vehicle or mobile home.

Brownback has declared a disaster emergency for 39 counties where property was damaged or destroyed by last Saturday's tornadoes and storms. Residents needing to replace important
documents will have to sign an affidavit of where they live.

The administration also says the Division of Taxation will provide replacements of prior year tax returns. The division is waiving interest and penalties in the affected areas on late filing of individual income taxes and automatic extensions until October.
