Kansas April Tax Collections Fall Short of Estimates


TOPEKA, Kan. (KPR) – State tax collections for April fell short of estimates. The Kansas Department of Revenue reports that tax collections for April totaled $1.3 billion, about 2.3% or $30.1 million below the estimate. The number also marks a 14.7% fall from April of last year.

WIBW TV reports that individual income tax collections were $76 million below estimates. Part of the decrease can be attributed to fewer processing days after the April 18 tax due date. Sales tax receipts were about $2.2 million less than expected.

Officials noted that this is likely the result of reducing the state sales tax on food. Corporate income tax collections bucked the trend and came in $50.2 million more than expected.
