Does TurboTax file the KS Homestead return electronically or do I have to file it by mail?

I paid to have TurboTax file my Kansas income tax return.


    Hi Royaz,

    I have looked into your question and found that the Kansas Department of Revenue will allow you to file your Kansas homestead claim electronically.

    Homestead WebFile is a FREE way to file Homestead claims. Like KS WebFile, refunds can be deposited directly into your bank account. Homestead WebFile is safe and secure. While all claim requirements must be met and information verified, filing electronically can speed up the refund process

    Here is a link the the Kansas Department of Revenue that will provided you with this information:

    • Thank you for your response. Yes, I have used the state of Kansas website in the past, but this year I paid the additional amount to file my state return through TurboTax.  I was wondering if the Homestead return was electronically filed by TurboTax at the same time.  I don't want to file twice!

    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.
