How Your Kansas Paycheck Works

To start receiving your paycheck in the Sunflower State, you'll need to fill out some forms for your employer. The most important ones are Form W-4 for federal income tax withholding and Form K-4 for Kansas state income tax withholding. These forms allow you to provide information that affect how much tax is withheld from your paycheck. You should review these forms periodically and update them if your personal or financial situation changes in any way.

First off, it's important to note that your gross pay is not the same as your net pay. Your gross pay is the amount of money you earn before any taxes or withholdings are taken out. Your net pay is the amount of money you receive after all those withholdings.

To calculate your net pay, you need to subtract federal and state taxes, as well as any pre-tax or post-tax contributions from your gross pay.

Federal taxes are the same for everyone in the country, regardless of where you live or work. They include income tax and the mandatory FICA taxes of Social Security and Medicare. The federal income tax is based on your filing status, income level and various other factors.

Social Security tax is 6.2% of your gross pay up to a certain limit ($147,000 in 2022). The Medicare tax is 1.45% of your gross pay, with an additional 0.9% for high earners. Your employer will match these amounts and contribute as well.

State taxes vary by state and Kansas is one of the states that imposes a personal income tax on its residents. This means that a portion of your earnings will be withheld by your employer and sent to the state government.

There are three different tax brackets in Kansas, with rates ranging from 3.1% to 5.7%. The brackets depend on your filing status and taxable income which is just your gross pay minus any adjustments or deductions you qualify for.

One good thing with the tax situation in Kansas is that there are no local income taxes, so you don’t have to worry about that. However, there may be other local taxes that affect your paycheck, such as sales tax or property tax.

Pre-tax withholdings are amounts that are taken out of your gross pay before taxes are calculated. They reduce your taxable income and therefore lower your tax liability. Some common pre-tax withholdings are contributions to retirement plans (such as 401(k) or IRA), health insurance premiums, flexible spending accounts (FSA) or health savings accounts (HSA).

Post-tax withholdings are amounts that are taken out of your net pay after taxes are calculated. They do not affect your taxable income or tax liability. Some common post-tax withholdings are contributions to Roth retirement plans, life insurance premiums, union dues or charitable donations.

When you go to file your taxes at the end of the tax year, one notable tax form that you should be aware of as a Kansas employee is Form K-40. This is the Kansas Individual Income Tax Return. You must file this form every year by April 15th (or the next business day if it falls on a weekend or holiday) to report your income and pay any taxes due or claim any refunds owed to you by the state. You can file this form electronically or by mail.
