A report released Thursday shows Kansas revenues last month narrowly beat the state estimate. Stephen Koranda reports.
Kansas tax collections in November met the estimate almost exactly on the dot. The state collected $1.4 million more than expected. That’s not a huge surprise, as this is the first revenue report since the estimate was lowered a few weeks ago. The state had been consistently coming up short in recent months, which led officials to lower the forecast. The extra revenue puts a very small dent in the budget deficit for the current fiscal year, which is right around $350 million.
