Become Required to Pay Kansas City City Earnings Tax?


All Kansas City, Mo., residents, regardless where they are employed, and all non-residents who work within the city limits, are subject to a 1 percent tax on their gross earnings. The revenue generated from this tax provides for fire and police protection, capital improvement programs, trash service, snow removal, and health and medical care. Those employees who are exempt from the Kansas City City Earnings Tax must complete the exemption form and submit to the UMKC HR Department.
