If you practice in both states and you wish to participate in IOLTA in Kansas and Missouri, you can setup an IOLTA acct. in the same bank if it has branches in both states. You will need to have two accounts and they need to be labeled for each state (one titled Kansas IOLTA and the other Missouri IOLTA). In Kansas, participating in IOLTA is still voluntary. If you wish to decline participation, you are required to send a letter or a declination form to the clerk of the appellate courts. Please send a copy of any declination to the KBF. You can find the Notice of Declination form online under About IOLTA.
Note: If you choose not to participate in IOLTA in Kansas and you have Kansas clients, you still must establish a non-IOLTA trust account in Kansas.
