REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUTING FIRM


To The Plan Administrator for
Kohl's Department Stores, Inc. Savings Plan
Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin

We have audited the accompanying statements of assets available for benefits of Kohl's Department Stores, Inc. Savings Plan (the “Plan”) as of January 31, 2015 and February 1, 2014, and the related statement of changes in assets available for benefits for the year ended January 31, 2015. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Plan's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Plan is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Plan's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the assets available for benefits of the Plan as of January 31, 2015 and February 1, 2014, and the changes in assets available for benefits for the year ended January 31, 2015, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The supplemental information in the accompanying schedule of Form 5500, Schedule H, Part IV, Line 4i - Schedule of Assets (Held at End of Year), January 31, 2015 has been subjected to audit procedures performed in conjunction with the audit of Kohl's Department Stores, Inc. Savings Plan's financial statements. The supplemental information is presented for the purpose of additional analysis and is not a required part of the financial statements but include supplemental information required by the Department of Labor's Rules and Regulations for Reporting and Disclosure under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. The supplemental information is the responsibility of the Plan's management. Our audit procedures included determining whether the supplemental information reconciles to the financial statements or the underlying accounting and other records, as applicable, and performing procedures to test the completeness and accuracy of the information presented in the supplemental information. In forming our opinion on the supplemental information in the accompanying schedule, we evaluated whether the supplemental information, including its form and content, is presented in conformity with the Department of Labor's Rules and Regulations for Reporting and Disclosure under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. In our opinion, the supplemental information in the accompanying schedule is fairly stated in all material respects in relation to the January 31, 2015 financial statements as a whole.

1. Description of Plan
The Kohl's Department Stores, Inc. Savings Plan (the "Plan") is a defined-contribution plan covering all full-time and part-time employees of Kohl's Department Stores, Inc. (the "Company"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kohl's Corporation. All full-time employees are eligible to participate when they are hired, and part-time employees are eligible to participate once they reach 1,000 hours of service in any calendar year. The Plan is subject to the provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 ("ERISA"). Participants should refer to the plan agreement for more complete information.

Participants may borrow up to $50,000 from their fund accounts, not to exceed 50% of their vested account balance. Loan terms may be up to five years, or longer if the loan proceeds are applied to the purchase of a principal residence. The loans are secured by the vested balance in the participant's account and bear interest at a rate equal to the Prime Rate as listed in the Wall Street Journal on the first business day of the month in which the loan is taken and was 3.25% for all loans at January 31, 2015 and February 1, 2014. Principal and interest are repaid in substantially equal installments through deductions from each paycheck beginning with the first payroll following loan issuance.

The Plan includes a non-leveraged employee stock ownership plan (the "ESOP") within the meaning of Internal Revenue Code(the "Code") Section 4975(e)(7). The ESOP is maintained as part of the Plan and is designed to invest primarily in the Company’s common stock. The purpose of the ESOP is to provide participants with the option of having dividends on the Company’s common stock re-invested in the Plan or paid directly to them in cash.

Although it has not expressed any intent to do so, the Company has the right under the Plan to discontinue its contributions at any time and to terminate the Plan subject to the provisions of ERISA. In the event of plan termination, participants will become 100% vested in their accounts.

The Plan's investments are held in the Master Trust account at The Northern Trust (the "Trustee"). Use of the Master Trust permits the commingling of the trust assets of the Kohl's Department Stores, Inc. Savings Plan and the Kohl's Corporation Employee Stock Ownership Plan for investment and administrative purposes. Although assets are commingled in the Master Trust, Aon Hewitt, the record keeper, maintains supporting records for the purpose of allocating the net earnings or loss of the investment accounts to the various participating plans.

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Valuation of Investments and Investment Income
Both the Plan's investments and the net assets of the Master Trust are reported at fair value. Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Refer to Note 4, Investments, for details on inputs, valuation techniques and fair value measurement level within the fair value hierarchy.
Net appreciation or depreciation of investments included in the accompanying statement of changes in assets available for benefits includes realized gains or losses from the sale of investments and unrealized appreciation or depreciation in the fair value of investments. The net realized gains or losses on the sale of investments represents the difference between the sale proceeds and the fair value of the investment as of the beginning of the period or the cost of the investment if purchased during the year. Net unrealized appreciation or depreciation in the fair value of investments represents the net change in the fair value of the investments held during the period.
The Master Trust invests in pooled separate accounts that determine their fair value using the net asset value (“NAV”) of the funds. The NAV is determined by each fund's trustee using the fair value of the underlying securities within the fund at year end.
Purchases and sales of securities are recorded on a trade-date basis. Interest income is recorded on the accrual basis and dividends are recorded on the ex-dividend date.

Investment Options
The Plan is intended to satisfy the requirements under Section 404(c) of ERISA and, therefore, provides that participants may choose to direct their contributions and/or all or part of their account balances among any of the Plan's various investment alternatives. Participant contributions in Kohl's Corporation common stock are limited to 25% of a participant's total contribution amount.
Contributions
Contributions from the Company are accrued for in accordance with the terms of the Plan and are made in cash. Participant contributions are recorded in the period the Company makes corresponding payroll deductions.
Expenses

Expenses related to the administration of the Plan are paid by the Company.
Plan Year

The Plan's fiscal year ends on the Saturday closest to January 31. Fiscal 2014 ended on January 31, 2015 and fiscal 2013 ended on February 1, 2014.
Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts in the financial statements. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Payment of Benefits

Benefits are recorded when paid.
Risks and Uncertainties

The Plan invests in various investment securities. Investment securities are exposed to various risks such as interest rate, market and credit risks. Due to the level of risk associated with certain investment securities, it is at least reasonably possible that changes in the values of investment securities will occur in the near term and that such changes could materially affect the amounts reported in the Statements of Assets Available for Benefits.
Notes Receivable from Participants

Notes receivable from participants are segregated from plan investments and measured at their unpaid principal balance plus any accrued but unpaid interest.

3. Contributions and Benefit and Withdrawal Payments
Eligible participants may make voluntary tax-deferred contributions up to a total of 100% of their base compensation (as defined), subject to certain statutory limits. Participant contributions made with tax-deferred dollars under Section 401(k) of the Internal Revenue Code (“IRC”) are excluded from the participant's current wages for federal income tax purposes. No federal income tax is paid on the tax-deferred contributions and growth thereon until the participant withdraws them from the Plan. The participant's contribution rate may be adjusted at the discretion of the plan administrator if a reduced rate is necessary to maintain Section  401(k) benefits. The Company's matching contribution is equal to 100% of each participant's contribution, up to a maximum of 5% of the participant's base compensation. The Plan also provides for additional Company contributions based on the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors. There were no additional discretionary Company contributions during the year ended January 31, 2015.
Company contributions made after January 30, 2010 vest immediately. Company contributions made before January 30, 2010 are 100% vested after three years of credited service, as defined by the Plan.
Subject to the terms of the Plan, the non-vested portion of any participant account is generally forfeited at the earlier of distribution or five consecutive one-year breaks in service. These forfeitures are then applied to reduce future Company contributions. Forfeitures used to reduce contributions totaled $688 thousand for the year ended January 31, 2015 and $421 thousand for the year ended February 1, 2014. Unallocated forfeitures, which will be used to reduce Company contributions in the following year, totaled $175 thousand as of January 31, 2015 and $298 thousand as of February 1, 2014.
Vested benefits for retired participants and permanently disabled participants are distributed, at the discretion of the participant, in a lump-sum payment or in periodic equal installments over a period not exceeding the lesser of ten years or the life expectancy of the participant. Vested benefits for terminated participants and deceased participants are distributed in a lump-sum payment.
Upon substantial financial hardship (as defined in the Plan), participants may withdraw any portion of the balance in their account, which is attributable to their voluntary tax-deferred contributions and earnings. Participants are prohibited from making contributions to the Plan for six months following receipt of a hardship withdrawal.
4. Investments
The Plan's and Trustee's investments are valued as follows:
Kohl's Corporation common stock is valued at fair value based on the closing price reported on the New York Stock Exchange.

Mutual funds are valued at fair value based on the net asset value of the fund.

Lifecycle commingled pools are valued at the net asset value (“NAV”) as determined by the trustee of the fund.  The NAV is based on the fair value of the underlying assets owned by the fund, minus its liabilities, then divided by the number of units outstanding. The investment objective of these funds is to match performance of the appropriate custom target date fund index.

Common collective trust index funds are valued at fair value based on the net asset values of the funds. The objective of these funds is to track the performance of a benchmark index. The Vanguard Total International Stock Index Fund measures the investment return of stocks issued by companies located in developed and emerging markets, excluding the United States. The Vanguard Institutional Index Fund measures the investment return of large-capitalization stocks in the United States.

The common collective trust fund is valued at the unit value, as reported by the fund manager, based on the fair value of the underlying investments. The objective of the Putnam Stable Value Fund, the Plan's common collective trust fund investment, is to deliver intermediate bond like returns with money market liquidity. In determining assets available for benefits, the common collective trust fund is recorded at contract value. Contract value is the amount participants would receive if they were to initiate permitted transactions under the terms of the plan and represents contributions under the contract, plus earnings (accrued interest), less participant withdrawals and administrative expenses.

Notes to Financial Statements
As of January 31, 2015 and February 1, 2014 and for the Year Ended January 31, 2015


The Plan's investments are classified into one of the following fair value measurement categories:

Level 1 Inputs - Quotes prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the reporting entity can access at the measurement date.
    
Level 2 Inputs - Inputs other than quotes prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly.

Level 3 Inputs - Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability.

Investments are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

Common Collective Trust Fund

The Putnam Stable Value Fund, a common collective trust fund, invests in guaranteed investment contracts ("GICs") and similar contracts issued by insurance companies, banks and other financial institutions. This fund invests up to 75% of its assets in security-backed investment contracts (“SBIC's”), including separate account products of insurance companies, and at least 5% of its assets in money-market, cash, cash equivalents and stable value funds. The Putnam Stable Value Fund primarily holds investments in fully benefit-responsive insurance contracts that provide that the Plan may make withdrawals at contract value for benefit-responsive requirements.

The interest crediting rate is the periodic interest rate accrued to participants and is either set at the beginning of the contract and held constant, or reset periodically to reflect the performance of the underlying securities. Variables impacting future crediting rates include current yield and duration of the assets backing the contracts, existing differences between the market values of assets backing the contracts and the contract values of the contracts.

Participants may ordinarily direct the withdrawal or transfer of all or a portion of their investment in the Putnam Stable Value Fund at contract value. Certain events may limit the ability of the Master Trust to transact at contract value with the issuer. The plan administrator does not believe that the occurrence of any such event is probable. The average yield and crediting interest rates were approximately two percent for the years ended January 31, 2015 and February 1, 2014.

The table below reconciles the fair value and the contract value of the Master Trust's common collective trust fund at January 31, 2015 and February 1, 2014:

6. Income Tax Status

The Plan has received a determination letter from the Internal Revenue Service dated January 31, 2012, stating that the Plan is qualified under Section 401(a) of the IRC and, therefore, the related trust is exempt from taxation. The plan is required to operate in conformity with the IRC to maintain its qualification.  The plan administrator is not aware of any events that have occurred that might adversely affect the plan's qualified status.

U.S. generally accepted accounting principles require plan management to evaluate tax positions taken by the Plan. The financial statement effects of a tax position are recognized when the position is more likely than not, based on the technical merits, to be sustained upon examination by the IRS. The plan administrator has analyzed the tax positions taken by the Plan, and has concluded that as of January 31, 2015 and February 1, 2014, there were no uncertain positions taken or expected to be taken. The Plan has recognized no interest or penalties related to uncertain tax positions. The Plan is subject to routine audits by taxing jurisdictions; however, there are currently no audits for any tax periods in progress.

7. Transactions With Parties-in-Interest
