Abstract: Group homology spectral sequences are used to investigate $ {K_3}$ of truncated polynomial rings. If $ F$ is a finite field of odd characteristic, we show that relative $ {K_2}$ of the pair $ (F\left[ t \right]/({t^q}),\,({t^k}))$, which has been identified by van der Kallen and Stienstra, is isomorphic to $ {K_3}(F\left[ t \right]/({t^k}),\,(t))$ when $ q$ is sufficiently large. We also show that $ {H_3}({\text{SL}}\,{\mathbf{Z}}\left[ t \right]/({t^k});{\mathbf{Z}}) = {{\mathbf{Z}}^{k - 1}} \oplus {\mathbf{Z}}/24$ and is isomorphic to the associated $ {K_3}$ group modulo an elementary abelian $ 2$-group.
