Budget Chief Look To Get Rid Of Kansas Income Tax

The budget chief for Gov. Sam Brownback says there will be a renewed effort next year to reduce or get rid of state incomes taxes.

Budget Director Steve Anderson praised efforts in this year’s session to pass a bill that would have phased income taxes down over time.

The failed bill would have essentially capped state revenue at the 2010 level and gradually eliminated personal income taxes as property and sales tax revenue rose over time.

A bill analysis by the Legislative Research Department says the bill also would have reduced corporate taxes, from the current 4 to 7 percent range, to as low as 3.5 percent.

Anderson says his office is working on similar plans for next year.

Democrats have called the effort shameful.
