Brownback’s Tax Plan Would Hurt Poorer Kansans

KSCB News - January 17, 2012 3:12 pm

New figures from the Kansas Department of Revenue show that Gov. Sam Brownback’s income tax plan would result in a tax increase on average for the state’s poorest households.

The figures show that taxpayers with adjusted gross incomes of
$25,000 or less would see an average increase of $156. They would,
as a class, pay $88 million more in individual income taxes than they
do now.

The Associated Press obtained the figures Tuesday. They were
developed by the department for a special group convened by the
Senate to study tax issues.

Households and some businesses with adjusted gross incomes of
more than $250,000 would see their taxes drop on average 18.5
percent, or by more than $5,200.

The plan cuts individual income tax rates, but it eliminates
credits and deductions.
