Subtractions from Federal Adjusted Gross Income (AGI)
If you have items of income that are taxable on your federal return but not to Kansas, then complete lines A7 through A17.
LINE A7: If the amount on Line 1 of Form K-40 is $75,000 or less, enter the amount received as benefits in 2020 under the Social Security Act (including SSI) to the extent these benefits are included in your federal AGI. Do not make an entry if your social security benefit is not subject to federal income tax.
LINE A8: Enter amounts withdrawn from a qualified retirement account and include any earnings thereon to the extent that amounts withdrawn were: 1) originally received as a KPERS lump sum payment at retirement and rolled over into a qualified retirement account, and 2) included in your federal AGI (line 1 of Form K-40). Do not make an entry if the amount withdrawn consists of income originally received from retirement annuity contracts purchased for faculty and others employed by the State Board of Regents or by educational institutions under its management with either their direct contributions or through salary reduction plans or, a pension received from any Kansas first class city that is not covered by KPERS.
LINE A9: Enter interest or dividend income received from obligations or securities of any authority, commission or instrumentality of the United States and its possessions that was included in your federal AGI. This includes U.S. Savings Bonds, U.S. Treasury Bills, and the Federal Land Bank. You must reduce the interest amount by any related expenses (management or trustee fees, etc.) directly incurred in the purchase of these securities. If you are a shareholder in a mutual fund investing in both exempt and taxable federal obligations, you may subtract only that portion of the distribution attributable to the exempt federal obligations. Retain a schedule showing the name of each U.S. Government obligation interest deduction claimed, as it may be requested by the Department of Revenue at a later date.
Interest from the following are taxable to Kansas and may not be entered on this line: Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA); Government National Mortgage Association (GNMA); Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (FHLMC).
LINE A10: Enter any state or local income tax refund included as income on your federal return.
LINE A11: If you are receiving retirement benefits/pay, report on this line benefits exempt from Kansas income tax (do not include Social Security benefits). For example, KPERS retirement benefits are subject to federal income tax, but exempt from Kansas income tax. You must make a specific entry on Schedule S to report these exempt benefits. Enter total amount of benefits received from the following plans that was included in your federal AGI. Do not enclose copies of the 1099R forms, instead keep copies for your records for verification by the Department of Revenue at a later date.
