Kansas State Taxes

Choosing Kansas as an RV Domicile State

Kansas state taxes are important to think about when choosing your permanent RV domicile. Other things a full time RV family on the road should consider are Kansas homeschool laws, as well as Kansas drivers license and Kansas auto insurance requirements.

The nice thing about having no ties to any state is the ability to choose your RV domicile, or RV home base. You can find a state that offers the best set of options for you and your family, depending on your individual needs. Of course, not every full time RV family has the ability or option of choosing their domicile. See the following page to determine if your domicile has been chosen for you:

    Every state in the United States has different homeschooling laws and regulations. Some states are very difficult to homeschool in, some states are very easy, while most states fall somewhere in the middle. Kansas homeschool laws do not exist; those who wish to Kansas homeschool must register as a private school.

    Kansas homeschool laws require parents to register as a private school, and refer to their teaching as a private, not home, school. They must be considered competent to teach their children, and provide adequate instruction comparable to the public schools. Their schools must be planned, scheduled, and they must test their children, though annual standardized testing or evaluation is not required.
