Kansas Retailers' Sales Tax
Sales tax exemptions for non-profit organizations.

Dear Ms. TTTTT:
We wish to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated August 25, 1998, regarding the application of Kansas Retailers’ Sales tax.
This is an informational letter only and not a private letter ruling pursuant to K.A.R. 92-19-59.
Governor Bill Graves signed Senate Bill 493 into law, which became effective July 1, 1998. It contained several sales tax exemptions to deserving organizations, including non-profit zoos and parent-teacher organizations.
Many organizations, such as your support group, perform a great deal of services for their communities with the funds that they raise. However, not every non-profit organization enjoys an exemption from Kansas sales tax. Yours does not.
An exemption for support groups, such as yours would require a change to Kansas statutes through legislative action. Therefore, you may also wish to contact your elected Kansas representative and senator.
If I may be of further assistance, please contact me at your earliest convenience at (785) 296-7776.
Thomas P. Browne, Jr.
