Kansas Lawmakers Vote On Income Tax Cut

Updated:

    The Kansas House is expected to vote today (Friday May 4) on a bill that would cut income taxes to prevent some individuals and corporations from paying more to the state following changes in federal tax laws.
    The Kansas Senate approved the bill just after midnight this morning by a vote of 21-19. 
    The federal changes last year limited some deductions and raised the federal standard deduction. 
    That would cause fewer Kansans to itemize on their state forms.
    The bill would allow Kansas filers to claim itemized deductions on their state tax forms even if they don't itemize on their federal forms. They can't do that now.
      The measure would cut income taxes by roughly $80 million during the fiscal year beginning in July.

      If the House approves the bill, it would advance to the desk of  Republican Governor Jeff Colyer.
