Kansas Taxes Fall Short of Expectations in August

TOPEKA, Kan.  - A new report says Kansas collected $4 million less in taxes than expected in  August.
The Department of Revenue said Friday the state took in $421 million in taxes, about 1%  below the official forecast of $425 million.
The department called revenues flat but said there are signs of economic growth in the figures.  Corporate income tax collections exceeded expectations for the month.
The state saw a slight surplus in tax collections in July. Since the current fiscal year began July 1, the  state has collected about $829 million in revenues, against projections of nearly $832 million. The difference is about $2.4 million, or 0.3%.
The numbers are likely to renew a political debate over massive income tax cuts enacted at Gov. Sam Brownback's urging.
