Kansas Sales Tax Rate Increase Information

posted by Kansas Department of Revenue on June 22, 2015

The Kansas state sales and use tax rate will increase from 6.15% to 6.5% on July 1, 2015.


KDA notice 15-02 explains how the rate increase affects the collection and reporting of sales and use tax by Kansas retailers.

  • Meals or catering-service contracts - Charges are subject to the tax rate in effect on the date of the catered event.
  • Room Occupancy - Hotels and accommodation brokers should charge sales tax on single-day room charges for June 30th and the morning of July 1st at the lower 6.15% state rate. All taxable occupancy charges billed thereafter should be taxed at the 6.5% state rate. For purposes of a rate change, room rentals billed on a weekly or monthly basis are treated as day-to-day rentals if either party has the unconditional right to terminate the room rental agreement. For rental periods other than daily rentals, the overall charge can be prorated and taxed based on the length of stay before and after the rate change. 


Retailers are required to charge customers a combined tax rate that equals the sum of the appropriate state rate plus all applicable local tax rates.  

Cities and counties in Kansas may also levy a local sales tax. Each retailer reports and remits the total of the state and local retailers’ sales tax collected to the Department of Revenue.
