How do I know how much I received for food stamps in Kansas?

I received SNAP (food stamp) assistance last year while I was off work due to surgeries and then when I entered school. I never received anything from the state telling me how much they were for the whole year. How I do find this total to put it into my taxes?

  • Does Kansas require that information? Because it is not an entry on your federal return at all.

Hello bees! I did some research on the Kansas state revenue site and I do not see where that information is taxed on your state return.  Here is the website link that I found: http://www.ksrevenue.org/personal.html.  Also, I would also suggest contacting the state department to make sure.  I hope this information helps.  Have a great evening!

    Hello brooke_foster_20!

    Thank you for contacting TurboTax.  In order to find the total amount of SNAP assistance you received last year, you should contact the SNAP assistance office and they can give you the exact amount that you received.  They will be able to give you the exact amount in order for you enter it on your taxes.  I hope this information helps.  Have a wonderful evening!

      People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

      1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
      2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
      3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
      4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
      5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
