INSTRUCTIONS FOR SCHEDULE K-39 GENERAL INFORMATION K.S.A. 79-32,207 provides for an income tax credit for taxpayers who make expenditures during the tax year to plug an abandoned oil or gas well on their land in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC). The credit is 50% of expenditures made during the tax year. If the credit exceeds the tax liability for the taxable year the expenditures are made, any unused credit may be carried forward until used. The total amount of credits taken by all taxpayers (including any carry over) may not exceed $250,000 in any fiscal year. For tax year 2013, and all tax years thereafter, new credits shall be available to only corporations that are subject to the Kansas corporate income tax (i.e., C corporations). New credits are not available to individuals, partnerships, S corporations, limited liability companies, and other pass-through entities. Carry Forward of Unused Credits: If this credit was earned prior to tax year 2013 and a carry forward credit remains available to a taxpayer, that taxpayer may continue to claim that credit. However, that carry forward credit shall be subject to limitations and requirements in place at the time the credit was earned. An abandoned oil or gas well is any well: 1) that the KCC (Kansas Corporation Commission) has the authority to plug, replug, or repair because such well is polluting or is likely to pollute any usable water strata or supply, or causing the loss of usable water; 2) on which drilling began prior to January 1, 1970; and 3) that is located on land owned by the taxpayer claiming this credit. Fiscal Year Credit Limitation. Qualifying taxpayers will receive the credit on a “first come, first serve” basis. The credit will be denied after the statutory fiscal year credit limit of $250,000 has been reached. However, the amount of credit denied for this reason may be entered on line 10 of the subsequent year’s Schedule K-39. SPECIFIC LINE INSTRUCTIONS IMPORTANT: If you incurred expenses to plug more than one qualifying abandoned oil or gas well this tax year as certified by the KCC, retain a schedule for your records showing the information in Part A for each well as it may be requested at a later date. Begin by completing the information at the top of the schedule. PART A – ABANDONED WELL INFORMATION LINE 1 – Enter the API (American Petroleum Institute) number and physical location of the abandoned well. LINE 2 – Check one of the boxes. Only wells located on land owned by the taxpayer claiming the credit qualify for the credit. LINE 3 – Enter date drilling of this well began (only wells on which drilling began prior to January 1, 1970 qualify for the credit). PART B – PLUGGING COSTS (C Corporations only) LINE 4 – Enter the KCC plugging fee for the abandoned well. Enclose a copy of KCC plugging invoice, even if the fee was waived by KCC. LINE 5 – Enter the total of other expenses incurred this tax year to plug the abandoned well. If you plugged more than one qualifying well, enter the total for all qualifying wells. LINE 6 – Enter the total of lines 4 and 5. LINE 7 – The amount of credit allowed is 50% of the total costs incurred this tax year. LINE 8 – Multiply line 6 by line 7. This is the amount of plugging expenditures available for credit this tax year. PART C – COMPUTATION OF THIS YEAR'S CREDIT LINE 9 – Enter any carry forward from line 14 of your prior year’s Schedule K-39. LINE 10 – Enter the amount of credit denied from the prior year’s Schedule K-39 because the fiscal year credit limit had been reached. LINE 11 – Add lines 8, 9, and 10 and enter the result. This is your total credit available this tax year. LINE 12 – Enter amount of your Kansas tax liability after all credits other than the credit for plugging an abandoned well. LINE 13 – Enter the lesser of lines 11 or 12. Enter this amount on the appropriate line of Form K-40, Form K-41, or Form K-120. PART D – COMPUTATION OF CREDIT CARRY FORWARD LINE 14 – Subtract line 13 from line 11. This is the amount of credit you will have available to enter on line 9 of your next year’s Schedule K-39. IMPORTANT: Do not send enclosures with this schedule. Retain copies of the following documents with your tax records as the Kansas Department of Revenue reserves the right to request them as necessary to verify your tax credit. • KCC Form CP-4. • An itemized list of expenses with copies of invoices for plugging costs and the KCC invoice indicating that the Commission has verified the plugging.

Form K-39 is a Kansas Corporate Income Tax form. States often have dozens of even hundreds of various tax credits, which, unlike deductions, provide a dollar-for-dollar reduction of tax liability. Some common tax credits apply to many taxpayers, while others only apply to extremely specific situations. In most cases, you will have to provide evidence to show that you are eligible for the tax credit, and calculate the amount of the credit to which you are entitled.

About the Corporate Income Tax

The IRS and most states require corporations to file an income tax return, with the exact filing requirements depending on the type of company.

Sole proprietorships or disregarded entities like LLCs are filed on Schedule C (or the state equivalent) of the owner's personal income tax return, flow-through entities like S Corporations or Partnerships are generally required to file an informational return equivilent to the IRS Form 1120S or Form 1065, and full corporations must file the equivalent of federal Form 1120 (and, unlike flow-through corporations, are often subject to a corporate tax liability).

Additional forms are available for a wide variety of specific entities and transactions including fiduciaries, nonprofits, and companies involved in other specific types of business.
