Kansas Tax Revenues Up In December

KSCB News - January 2, 2014 8:06 am

Kansas revenue officials say the state took in $3.3 million more in taxes than anticipated in December and collections met expectations for the past six months.

The Department of Revenue reported Tuesday that the state collected $550 million in taxes in December, when the state’s official financial forecast predicted less than $547 million. The surplus is 0.6 percent.

From the start of the current fiscal year in July through December, the state collected $2.74 billion in taxes, or $4.3 million more than anticipated. The surplus is about 0.2 percent.

However, tax collections this year are running about 9 percent behind collections last year because of income tax cuts enacted last year.

Tax collections were $603 million in December 2012 and $3.02 billion from July through December 2012.
