Kansas Arts License Plates

State of the Arts

These uniquely designed plates are a wonderful way to support the arts in Kansas. By purchasing a Kansas Arts license plate, you can help spread the word about the importance of the arts in Kansas communities and help raise funds for critical arts programs. All purchases are tax deductible and will go toward arts education and awareness initiatives in Kansas.

In addition to your annual tag renewal, taxes and county fees, there is an annual fee of $50 for the Kansas Arts license plate, which goes to the Kansas Creative Industries Arts Commission. Personalization of the specialty plate is not available at this time.

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.
