The Kansas K-40, Schedule S, and K-40H (homestead claim) forms will be available at the Customer Service desk for 25¢ each. The library purchases these forms from the state of Kansas and the charge is to cover our costs.

Kansas tax forms are also available at the Taxpayer Assistance Center located in the Docking state office building (901 SW Harrison).
