Kansas Tax Bill

All of our software is updated whenever a legislative enactment, court rule, or case decision changes the application of the law. A recent example was the extensive changes made by the Supreme Court’s revision of the Kansas Child Support Guidelines in Administrative Order 261, effective April 1, 2012.

For another example, the recently signed revision of the Kansas tax laws (signed by the Governor on May 22, 2012) takes effect on January 1, 2013,

The income-tax cuts collapse the state’s three tax brackets to two. Married couples filing jointly will pay 3 percent on their first $30,000 of income and 4.9 percent on earnings beyond that. Single filers will pay 3 percent on their first $15,000 of income and 4.9 percent on earnings above that. Currently, rates are 3.5, 6.25 and 6.45 percent. The act takes effect on January 1, 2013.

The bill eliminates taxes on the profits business owners get from limited liability companies, subchapter S corporations and sole proprietorships.

It increases the standard deduction to $9,000. It had been $4,500 for single head-of-household taxpayers and $6,000 for married couples.

It also gets rid of the child and dependent care credit claimed by nearly 72,000 people who are responsible for children, disabled dependents and spouses.

All of these changes will be reflected in the update to the Bradley Child Support Calculator for 2013. The changes in the Federal Income Tax laws for 2013 will also be included in the update.
