Effective July 1st, the statute of limitations for state sales tax refunds will be three years.
Recently, the legislature in Kansas passed Senate Bill 10. This bill rescinds the one year statute of limitations previously placed on sales and use tax refund claims. Effective July 1, 2011, the statute of limitations returns to three years.
From the adoption of the May 2009 amendment until July 1, 2011, taxpayers have one year from the date that the tax was due to file claim for refund. But if they wait to file until the new law takes effect, they will be able to file a refund claim from 2008 to current.
The Kansas Department of Revenue has also confirmed that any claims denied since 2008 due to the one year statute of limitations, can be resubmitted for review.
