2014 Kansas: Food Sales Tax Credit
In Kansas, a Food Sales Tax Credit is available to certain taxpayers to offset the cost of sales tax paid on food purchased in Kansas.
Certain Kansas taxpayers, who filed married filing separate and have a dependent who is under the age of 18, may not have received this credit.
