Tell your elected officials that you support pro-homeownership policies like the mortgage interest and property tax deductions.

DID YOU KNOW?

Kansas income tax filers may only itemize deductions on state tax filings if they itemize on their federal return. As a result, income taxes on Kansas homeowners could increase from recent changes to Federal tax policy.

Because the new standard deduction for Federal taxes has increased to $12,000 for single filers and $24,000 for joint returns, many homeowners will no longer be able to take advantage of Kansas itemized deductions – unless the Kansas legislature fixes it. Most severely impacted will be the middle class homeowners.

If the Legislature does nothing, the result is an income tax increase on middle-class homeowners.

But, with your help, you can tell the Legislature that you support preserving interest and property tax deductions.
