Kansas – Study: Kansans buy groceries out of state due to food tax

www.kmbc.com – January 17, 2016

“Wichita State University’s Kansas Public Finance Center analyzed the latest available food sales data and estimated that Kansas lost $345.6 million in food sales in 2013. The data does not include last year’s sales tax hike that boosted Kansas’ food sales tax to one of the highest in the nation.”

“Kansas is one of only 14 states that taxes groceries. Neighboring Nebraska and Colorado do not.”
