Filing individual income taxes online removes the onerous process of
filling out paper forms, and is the fastest way for taxpayers to receive
refunds, according to the Kansas
Department of Revenue. Kansas residents can visit Kansas WebFile (https://www.kansas.gov/webfile)
to file their 2012 Kansas Individual Income Tax Returns online.
Online filing through WebFile
is secure, fast and paperless, and allows taxpayers to have their
refunds directly deposited into their bank accounts. Paper-filed returns
do not qualify for direct deposit funds.
Taxpayers who file and request a direct deposit usually receive their
refunds in less than one week - up to 80 percent quicker than those who
file traditional paper forms. People also may choose to receive their
refunds in the form of paper checks. Kansas launched WebFile in 2002.
Last year, the Department of Revenue
received 84 percent of over 1.5 million individual income tax returns
electronically, an increase of four percent over the prior year.
The 2012 Individual Income Tax Return deadline is April 15, 2013. Save
time and file online today at: https://www.kansas.gov/webfile.
