Kansas Governor's Timeline to Eliminate Income Taxes Remains Uncertain

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Governor Sam Brownback and his top aides can't predict when Kansas will meet his stated goal of eliminating income taxes under his plan to slow down future, promised reductions to head off predicted budget deficits.  The Republican governor promised in his annual State of the State address that Kansas will continue a "march to zero" on income taxes.  But his new tax proposals abandoned most of the cuts in personal income tax rates scheduled for the next three years. They also divert revenues to a rainy day budget fund ahead of future reductions.  The governor and many of his allies contend he's being practical amid budget problems that arose after legislators aggressively cut personal income taxes at his urging in 2012 and 2013 to boost the economy.
