Home to Amelia Earhart, Dorothy Gale, and Clark Kent, Kansas has always loomed large in the American imagination. There are the endless fields of corn, charming small towns, and, of course, the occasional magical tornado or alien meteor shower. But from Topeka to Wichita, Kansas boasts some vibrant urban centers as well. So whether your next employee is a crime-fighting alien from Smallville, or an accountant from Kansas City, chances are they won’t want to leave The Sunflower State. After all, there’s no place like home. Fortunately, no matter where your business is based, collaborating across state lines is easy in this era of remote work.

Bringing on a new employee can be exciting, but there’s often a lot to do as well. You want to onboard your new hire as quickly and smoothly as possible to ensure their success at your organization. But before you get started with onboarding, you’ll need to register your company with the state of Kansas.

Register your business in Kansas in four easy steps:

  1. First, you’ll need to register with the Kansas Department of Revenue to create your account.
  2. Once you’ve created your account, you'll be able to access and complete the Kansas Business Tax Application online.
  3. Next, you’ll need to register with the Kansas Department of Labor.
  4. Once you’ve registered, you can file a status report online to establish a new account with the Kansas Department of Labor

Once you’ve registered with the Department of Revenue and the Department of Labor, you’ll be able to register new employees, file wage reports, and submit unemployment taxes online. Remember, in general, you are responsible for paying an unemployment tax once you’ve paid $1500 in wages in a single calendar quarter, or employed someone for a portion of a day in 20 weeks in a calendar year.
