Kansas has specific taxes for CNG and LNG and vehicle owners can either pay those taxes at the pump or apply for a decal and pay for motor fuel taxes on a mileage basis.
Kansas offers an AFV tax credit for up to 40% of the incremental or conversion costs of qualified AFVs, or 5% of an OEM AFV. The state also offers tax credits against the building of AFV infrastructure. However, this tax credit does not apply to natural gas vehicles. 2012 changes to legislation regulated the tax credits to being available only to corporate tax payers.
Kansas instituted an AFV or Flex-Fuel Vehicle standard in the state with E-85 being the preferred flex fuel, but other AFVs qualify as well.

|10,000 to 26,000 lbs.||Up to $4,000|
|Over 26,000 lbs.||Up to $40,000|
NOTE: 6/21/12 - Confirmed by email with Kathleen Smith (Kathleen.Smith@kdor.ks.gov) from the Kansas Department of Revenue, that the legislation changed in 2006 and that natural gas was removed from the definition of "Alternative Fuels" - thereby, this tax credit does not apply.
