Arts Checkoff

Supporting the arts is easy in Kansas with ‘Arts Checkoff’ on tax returns

Kansans may direct all or part of their state income tax refund to support the arts. Individuals who will receive a refund will have an “Arts Checkoff” option to donate a portion of the refund to the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission. The Kansas Department of Revenue will send the designated amount of the refund to the KCAIC.


All funds that the KCAIC receives through the “Arts Checkoff” will directly fund arts programming in Kansas. The KCAIC offers several programs that support artists and organizations in communities across the state. Programs include the Strategic Investment Program, the Arts Integration Program, New Dance and New Play Labs and the Tallgrass Artist Residency.

“Funds received through the Arts Checkoff help support artists and organizations across Kansas that are using the arts to grow the economy and better their communities. Directing a portion of their state income tax refund to the KCAIC is a convenient way for Kansans to help support the arts in our state.” – Peter Jasso, Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission Director
