The Kansas Department of Revenue ("Department") recently ruled that providing advice and answering questions over the telephone was not a taxable service.

The taxpayer sold services for healthcare providers. These services consisted of providing qualified staff to give advice and answer patient questions over the phone. As part of these services, the taxpayer received, answered, and transferred phone calls.

Kansas taxes sales of enumerated services, including telephone answering services. Sales of non-enumerated services are not subject to tax. Medical advising and consulting services are not enumerated services.

The Department ruled that the taxpayer's services were not subject to tax. The taxpayer's services went beyond merely receiving, transferring, and answering phone calls. The service was therefore not a taxable enumerated service.
