Kansas – Gov. Sam Brownback’s Fantasyland vs. the Real Kansas Sales Tax Shortfall

www.kansascity.com by Yael T. Abouhalkah – November 5, 2015

“Sales tax revenue was up 4.1 percent in the United States for April through June 2015, the most recent months for which data are available. However, Kansas sales tax receipts fell 0.6 percent for that period. That was the eighth worst rate for the 45 U.S. states that have sales taxes. In the Plains area measured in the report, Iowa (up 2.9 percent), Minnesota (up 3.3 percent) and South Dakota (up 1 percent) did better than Kansas. The states with sales tax growth rates worse than Kansas were Indiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Utah.”
