The Kansas Sales & Use Tax Jurisdiction Code Booklet effective July 1, 2012 is available here: http://www.ksrevenue.org/pdf/pub1700712.pdf.

According to the booklet, out-of-state retailers are required to collect the Kansas compensating use tax on a sale that is delivered to a Kansas address. The retailer would collect “…compensating use tax on this sale at a rate equal to the state and local sales tax rate in effect…” for that locality.
