Governor’s Plan Ends Home Property Tax Deduction

KSCB News - January 23, 2013 3:30 pm

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is proposing to eliminate an income tax deduction for the property taxes paid by home owners.

Legislators in both parties said Wednesday they were surprised to learn that the conservative Republican governor’s proposals included eliminating the income tax deduction for property taxes. They said they didn’t know it was a part of the plan until the Senate Ways and Means Committee agreed to sponsor Brownback’s tax plan.

The governor mentioned the proposal briefly in documents his office released last week but didn’t talk about it in his State of the State address. The governor also proposes to eliminate a popular income tax deduction for interest paid on home mortgages.

Brownback’s plan also would set up automatic cuts in individual income tax rates in the future.
