New Kansas Income Tax Tables

These changes will affect all USD 373 employee paychecks
The 2017 Kansas Legislature increased individual income tax rates retroactively for tax year 2017, and further increased them for tax year 2018 and later years. The changes are in effect beginning July 1, 2017. The income tax rates for tax year 2017 are changing in mid-year, meaning many employees will not have had enough tax withheld for the year. In addition, tax rates will change again in only 6 months because different rates become effective January 1, 2018, for tax year 2018.

To address these concerns the Payroll department has updated the withholding tax tables to reflect the higher 2018 tax year withholding tax rates effective with the July 2017 payroll. However, all certified employee payrolls were processed in June under the old Kansas tax rates for the June, July and August paychecks.

The updated tax tables are available at: https://ksrevenue.org/forms-btwh.html Applying these rates to the second half of tax year 2017 should allow most employees to “catch-up” on their withholding for tax year 2017. In addition, beginning to withhold at the 2018 rate now means it will not be necessary to change the amount of withholding again in just 6 months.

While using the 2018 withholding rate tables will make the necessary adjustments to most wage earners’ withholding, every taxpayer is different. As a result, we encourage all wage earners to review their personal tax situation, and to discuss any questions with their tax preparer or tax professional.

K-4 forms are available in the payroll office if you wish to change/update your Kansas tax withholding.  This form must be completed and in the payroll office no later than August 14, 2017 in order to be effective for the August payroll.
