TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- The Kansas Department of Revenue announced they will give corporations more time to file their 2018 income tax returns.

According to a news release, corporations will get an added 30 days to file the returns giving them until November 15th to get their paperwork into the KDOR.

“The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act significantly changed the landscape of tax law for corporations, and the extra time is designed to give corporate filers more time to ensure accuracy and compliance with the new law,” said Zach Fletcher, spokesperson for KDOR.

While the extension will give corporations more time to file, it will not give them more time to pay. They will still need to have payment in on the 15th day of the fourth month following the end of the corporation's tax year.

They said anyone with questions can call the Kansas Department of Revenue Tax Assistance Center at 785-368-8222.
