Late tax filers still have one more day to meet the annual deadline for income tax returns.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the deadline for filing federal and state of Kansas income tax returns was extended from April to July 15 this year.

The IRS has online tools that may be helpful to people who have not yet filed their federal tax returns. These tools can be found at, according to a news release from the federal agency.

Among the tools available is the Interactive Tax Assistant, which may provide answers to questions filers have.

People who already have filed their federal tax return and are anticipating a refund can use the Where’s My Refund? on the IRS website to check on the status of their refunds.

The Kansas Department of Revenue operates Taxpayer Assistance Centers to help residents and businesses with state tax questions or file taxes, according to the department’s website.

The closest Taxpayer Assistance Center to Leavenworth County is located at the Scott State Office Building, 120 S.E. 10th Ave. in Topeka. The phone number for the center is 785-368-8222. The center is open from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday.
