Kansas is a destination-based sales tax state. This means that, when making a sale to a buyer in Kansas, you are required to collect the combined state + local sales tax rate at your buyer’s ship to location. For example, if you live in Nebraska but make a sale to a buyer in Lawrence, Kansas, you’d charge your buyer the total Lawrence state and local sales tax rate.
