To qualify, a taxpayer shall apply to the Secretary of Health and Environment for a “certificate of compliance” that the costs were incurred to comply with environmental standards or requirements as specified in K.S.A. 79-32, 222 subsection (a). If the credit allowed exceeds the tax liability in any one taxable year, the excess may be carried forward until used, except that no credit shall be carried over for deduction after the fourth taxable year succeeding the year in which the costs are incurred. This credit is only available to corporations that are subject to the Kansas corporate income tax (i.e., C corporations) and not available to individuals, partnerships, S corporations, limited liability companies, and other passthrough entities. Carry Forward of Unused Credits: For tax year 2017 and all years thereafter no new credit or carryforward is available to individuals, partnerships, S corporations, limited liability companies, and other pass-through entities. Qualified expenditures means expenditures which the secretary of health and environment certifies to the director of taxation are required for an existing refinery to comply with environmental standards or requirements established pursuant to federal statute or regulation, or state statute or rules and regulation, adopted after December 31, 2006. Refinery is an industrial process plant, located in this state, where crude oil is processed and refined into petroleum products.

Form K-81 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.
