Kansas collapsed the three-bracket structure for individual state income taxes (3.5, 6.25 and 6.45 percent) into a two-bracket system. The new tax rates implemented FY 2013 through 2018 are shown below.

The reform also increased the standard deduction amount for single head-of-household filers from $4,500 to $5,500, and for married taxpayers filing jointly from $6,000 to $7,500.

There were a number of changes enacted to Kansas’ itemized deductions. The deduction for certain gambling losses was repealed after 2013. Most other itemized deductions (except the deduction for charitable contributions, which was fully retained) were reduced and then eliminated. As of Tax Year 2015, Kansas itemized deductions consist only of charitable contributions, 50 percent of residential mortgage interest and 50 percent of property tax paid.
