Kansas City Earnings Tax Refund

If you pay Kansas City Earnings Tax and you expect to receive a refund then you have new steps to follow this year. You should have received a postcard from the city in the mail. On March 14 2022, Kansas City council passed ordinance Section 68-393 that says starting this year if you pay the city’s earnings tax and you’re due a refund, you will have to file a separate petition with the city to get it. The ordinance was designed to keep the city in line with state law. Taxpayers must submit to the Revenue Division a completed notice of earnings tax payment under protest (Form RD-PUP). This form can be completed and submitted electronically through https://quicktax.gentax.net/KCP/TAP or by mail. Paper forms submitted by mail must be signed and notarized. Forms submitted electronically do not need to be notarized. Attached, please find a copy of the Form RD-PUP for your reference. If you have questions or need assistance completing the Form RD-PUP please contact our office.
