Revenue Sec: Tax Talks Should Focus on Big Picture

JordanSecretary of Revenue Nick Jordan speaking to reporters. (Photo by Stephen Koranda)Governor Sam Brownback’s administration is urging lawmakers to look at the bigger picture when considering his tax proposal. Supporters of the plan say that its cut in income tax rates will boost the Kansas economy. But the plan is being criticized, because it would eliminate two popular for mortgage interest and one for property tax payments. Secretary of Revenue Nick Jordan told reporters today (FRI) that the plan would yield a net benefit for Kansas taxpayers. He says people opposed to the plan are only considering small portions of it.

Democratic leaders are calling the proposal a tax shift. The top Democrat in the House, Paul Davis, says he believes middle and lower-income families would suffer financially because the reduction in income taxes would not save Kansans as much money as the current tax deductions.
