Additional information, including reporting codes and addresses for special districts, is available at the Kansas Department of Revenue. Address ranges for special tax districts are incredibly specific. They may only include even addresses along a portion of a road, or only odd addresses, or even addresses along one road but odd addresses along another. Special tax jurisdictions are one reason sales and use tax compliance is so challenging, especially for remote sellers or businesses with multiple locations.

The most effective way to handle sales and use tax compliance is with tax automation software, which can calculate rates and file returns in real time. Learn more.
