Kansas sales tax takes a downturn

Steven Rains - September 16, 2019 5:18 pm

With sales taxes down across Kansas Monday morning, officials in multiple cities are assessing the impact to their local area.

Bernie Hayen with the city of Manhattan reported August showed June retail and accommodation sales were down more than 9% from last year. Country Stampede being moved to Topeka is just one of the reason for that in Manhattan.

Hayen looked at other cities and counties across the state and said most saw a decline in sales tax revenues from August 2018 to August 2019 as well. Collectively, counties and cities with sales taxes were down 4.1%.
