Introduction

The State of Kansas is committed to delivering your tax refund as quickly and efficiently as possible. Most refunds are issued within four to six weeks from the date your return is received.

What to expect

If you filed your Kansas tax return electronically and included bank account information, your refund will generally be processed and deposited into your account within two weeks. If you mailed in your return, it will take longer—expect to wait up to six weeks for processing. You can check the status of your refund using the Online Refund Status tool on the Kansas Department of Revenue website.

If you owe back taxes or money for child support, your refund may be applied to that balance. You will be notified by the Kansas Department of Revenue if this is the case.

How to avoid delays in your refund

The average tax refund in Kansas is $2,640, but if you want to get your refund as quickly as possible, there are a few things you can do.

First, make sure you file your return electronically and choose direct deposit for your refund. Filing electronically is the quickest way to get your refund, and choosing direct deposit means you won’t have to wait for a check in the mail.

If you owe money to the state or federal government, your refund may be delayed until that debt is paid. You can still choose direct deposit for your refund, but it will be sent to the government first to pay off your debt.

If you are due a refund from both the state and federal government, you may receive separate checks or one check for the total amount. It depends on how you filed your taxes and where you live. If you choose direct deposit, you can specify how you want your refund divided between accounts.

The Kansas Department of Revenue recommends that taxpayers file their returns as early in the year as possible to avoid delays in getting their refunds. The sooner we receive your return, the sooner we can processing it and get your money back to you.

What to do if you don’t receive your refund

If you filed your Kansas tax return and expected to receive a refund, but it has been more than four weeks since you filed, there are a few things you can do to check on the status of your refund:
-First, check the Kansas Department of Revenue’s Where’s MyKansasRefund? page. You’ll need to enter your Social Security number, filing status, and the exact amount of your refund.
