WHAT IS THE DRY CLEANING ENVIRONMENTAL SURCHARGE
The dry cleaning environmental surcharge is a 2.5% tax on all dry cleaning and laundering services. It is paid by the customer in
addition to the Kansas Retailers’ Sales tax due on these services.
WHO MAY USE THIS
Only those businesses that are registered with the Kansas Department of Revenue to collect the environmental surcharge may use
WHAT PURCHASES ARE EXEMPT
Only purchases of dry cleaning and/or laundry services for RESALE are exempt from the dry cleaning environmental surcharge (and
sales tax) with this certificate. For example, a hotel would be registered to collect the tax on dry cleaning & laundry "sent out" for
guests. The hotel would use this certificate to purchase the laundry or dry cleaning services for guests without tax. The hotel resells
the dry cleaning or laundry service to the hotel guest and collects the dry cleaning environment surcharge and sales tax from the final
consumer (hotel guest). A hotel may not use this certificate for its own linens or other hotel property.
TAX REGISTRATION NUMBERS
This certificate is an exemption from the dry cleaning environmental surcharge and also acts as a resale exemption certificate. In
order for the sale of services to be exempt, the buyer must have a current Kansas dry cleaning registration number AND a current
Kansas sales tax number. This certificate is not complete unless both numbers are given. Information on how to recognize a Kansas
sales tax number is in Publication KS-1520, “Kansas Exemption Certificates.”
A dry cleaning registration number has three parts: A-000-0000. The tax type is indicated by the letter "A," followed by the county
prefix (each of the 105 counties in Kansas has been assigned a number), followed by four unique numbers. For example, a Shawnee
County dry cleaning registration number might be A-003-9999. (A seller may request copies of the customer's actual certificates of
registration to verify the registration numbers furnished by the customer on this certificate.)
