A group pushing to eliminate the state income tax in Kansas kicked off a bus tour today (FRI) in Topeka. That comes the same day that officials prepare a new estimate for the state’s tax collections. The group Kansans for No Income Tax is lobbying to eliminate income taxes to help grow the state economy. Ashley McMillan is president of the organization. She says the two-day tour is aimed at getting people involved with their cause.
Governor Sam Brownback’s administration is developing a tax plan that's expected to include reducing, but not eliminating, state income taxes. The details of his proposal could be released soon.
