Kansas City Local Tax Refund Eligibility

Employees who are teleworking outside of Kansas City may be eligible for a refund of any local taxes paid through payroll during each tax year. Although the University will continue to deduct this 1% local tax from all employees, this particular group is encouraged to explore how to file a refund directly with the city.

While Human Resources is dedicated to serving each and every employee at UMKC, we are unable to provide tax advice and recommend contacting a certified and competent tax professional with any tax questions.
