Kansas May Need 16 Weeks to Refund Paper Tax Filings

The Kansas Department of Revenue warns that it may take up to 16 weeks to process state tax returns filed on paper this year due to budget cuts. They will also not be sending paper forms to libraries, post offices and other locations for the public to pick up. Instead, the state is encourages taxpayers to file electronically to save on processing costs.

Processing paper returns and sending out refunds used to take six to eight weeks, but the process is expected to last up to four months this season.
