Kansas collected $22 million more in taxes than expected this month.
The Department of Revenue reported Friday that the state collected almost $310 million in taxes in February, when it anticipated taking in $287 million. The surplus is 7.7 percent.
The numbers are good news for Republican Gov. Sam Brownback and legislators, but they don’t solve the state’s budget problems.
Officials must close a budget shortfall that had been projected at nearly $600 million for the fiscal year that begins July 1.
