Kansas recently released its filing specifications for the 2021 tax year. These include the EFW2, KW-2 CSV, K-99 IRS 1220, KW-3/KW-3E, and 1099-CSV formats. Of the five sets of specifications, all but the 1099 CSV remained unchanged for the 2021 tax year. For the EFW2, KW-2 CSV, K-99 1220, KW-3/KW-3E specifications, the only change to the document was the revision date being updated to October 2021.
For the 1099 CSV format, there were only changes noted for the 1099-MISC record. Nonemployment Compensation has been removed from the fields, and Section 409A Deferrals and Nonqualified Deferred Compensation fields have been added to the CSV detail.
