Objectives

An issue has been discovered in the Kansas 1040 electronic file relating to direct debit of the balance due. The default direct debit date is April 15, 2021. All indicators in the return, such as letters, filing instructions, diagnostics, and reports, indicate the debit will occur on May 17, 2021, but the electronic file and Status System will use April 15, 2021.

To avoid using the default direct debit date, you will need to key in a specific date using the instructions below. 

If you have already submitted the return, you will need to discuss payment options directly with the State of Kansas Department of Revenue before the payment is processed on April 15, 2021

Environment

  • 1040
  • Kansas
  • CCH Axcess
  • CCH ProSystem fx Tax
  • Electronic Filing
  • efiling

Details

The default direct debit date is April 15, 2021. To avoid using the default direct debit date, you will need to key in a specific date in on General > Basic Data > Direct Deposit/Electronic Funds Withdrawal > Withdrawal Date (Interview Form BNK-1, Box 43).

Important Notes:
  • For returns filed between 3/28/2021 and 4/15/2021 = Amounts due will be deducted from the taxpayer account on 4/15/2021 unless a different date is specified
  • For returns filed 4/16/2021 – 4/17/2021 = Amounts due will likely be deducted the same day unless there is a different date specified
  • For returns filed on or after 4/18/2021 = The return needs to be recalculated and exported on the new release and then subsequently efiled. Amounts due will be deducted on 5/17/2021 unless there is a different date specified
  • After 4/18/2021, any return not calculated and uploaded on or after this release will be stopped by CCH. These returns will need to be calculated on the latest release and re-uploaded.

If your firm's returns are already filed and contain direct debit for Kansas 1040 returns, please contact the Kansas Department of Revenue to discuss what options you may have for them before the payment is processed on April 15.

We are planning on addressing this on our April 18 release. In the meantime, the best practice for returns not yet submitted is to use the input mentioned and key in the date you want the payment to occur, or to pay the balance due by check using Form K-40V.
