Kansans, get ready to pay for the pleasure of paying taxes

Want to file your Kansas taxes on paper? Get ready to shell out some greenbacks for the pleasure. A bill in the Kansas Legislature would allow the Kansas Department of Revenue to charge $25 for paper filings.

The fee would offset the cost of handling paper returns, which cost more to process than electronic ones.

It's the latest move by the state to either save money or raise more revenue to balance next year's state's budget, now in the red to the tune of $400 million.
