I Want to Bring My Alcoholic Liquor Into Kansas

Individuals who possess alcoholic liquor and wish to bring it into Kansas are required to report and pay gallonage tax on the alcoholic liquor. There are three different forms to report and pay gallonage tax.

If you are special ordering wine for your personal use or if you are a winery wanting to ship wine to a Kansas address visit our special order shipping license page for additional information.

If you are:

  • Transporting alcoholic liquor* into Kansas from outside the borders of the United States, file the ABC-205 and pay the appropriate gallonage tax prior to transporting the alcoholic liquor into Kansas. A one gallon tax credit is allowed.
  • Transporting alcoholic liquor* into Kansas from within the borders of the United States, file the ABC-206 and pay the appropriate gallonage tax prior to transporting the alcoholic liquor into Kansas.
  • Transporting wine into Kansas that was purchased at any out-of-state winery in a face-to-face transaction or have the winery ship the wine to their Kansas residence, file the ABC-207 gallonage tax return and pay the appropriate gallonage tax within 30 days after purchasing the wine.

If you have gallonage tax due in the amount of $5 or less, you are not required to submit your Individual Gallonage Tax Return or remit the gallonage tax payment pursuant to the Kansas Department of Revenue Revenue Ruling 19-2010-03 that became effective on Aug. 20, 2010. For more information on Revenue Ruling 19-2010-03, please see our Policy Information Library.

* Alcoholic liquor includes alcohol, spirits, wine, beer (more than 3.2% alcohol by weight), flavored malt beverage (more than 4% alcohol by volume) but does not include cereal malt beverage (3.2% alcohol by weight or less) or flavored malt beverage (4% alcohol by volume or less).
