If you're paying to both states throughout the year, you need to talk to your employer.

I pay to the state I work in and I elect if I want to pay to the state I reside in (depends on the rates for that year) during the year. When filing, I usually end up getting a credit from the state I work in anyway, and the state I reside in is within $100 whether I end up paying or getting a refund.

If you are paying both states the full amount, you're getting hosed and it isn't Kansas OR Missouri's fault.

Yep my friends do that after moving out of KCMO so they didn't have to pay for private schools.

Can an employer even take out income taxes for two states?

I wouldn't think so and it makes no sense to do so.

The people handling payroll would be savvy enough to know not to do it.

You may be right... all I know is that when I first moved here I lived in Westport and worked in Overland Park and they were taking both states' taxes out of my paycheck and I didn't get it back until I filed my tax return. When my job location changed to Missouri then they stopped taking Kansas out. It must have been an HR error and I hope they caught it on there end since they were presumably paying out taxes on both states too.
