Kansas is in a better economic place this year that it was last year, according to Kansas Secretary of Revenue Nick Jordan said last week.
November revenue receipts bested estimates by about 1 percent. Kansas collected $3.6 million in revenues last month in individual income receipts – more than last November’s $35.2 million.
The increase was driven by a 10 percent increase in withholding receipts.
“It is encouraging to see solid signs that the economy is recovering,” Jordan said. “But we can still do better by focusing on tax policy and a frugal budget.”
