TOPEKA – Governor Laura Kelly today announced that total tax-only collections for January were $1.05 billion. That is $56.2 million, or 5.7%, more than the January estimate. Those collections were also $102.4 million, or 10.8%, more than January 2022.

“Month after month of tax collections surpassing the estimates show that, thanks to our laser-sharp focus on supporting businesses, we are now able to responsibly cut taxes for Kansas families,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “We should start by completely and immediately eliminating the state sales tax on groceries, diapers, and feminine hygiene products, creating a back-to-school sales tax holiday, and providing Social Security income tax relief to Kansas seniors. We will get that done if we work together.”

Individual income tax collections were $494.9 million in January. That is $65.1 million, or 11.6%, less than the estimate and 8.7% less than January 2022. Corporate income tax collections were $166.1 million, which is $131.1 million, or 374.6%, more than the January 2023 estimate. Those collections are $134.5 million, or 425.0%, more than January 2022.

“Corporate tax receipts continue to be higher and individual income receipts lower because of the shift between the two tax types brought about by the SALT Parity Act,” Secretary of Revenue Mark Burghart said. "The SALT Parity Act now allows owners of pass-through entities, such as S corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies, to elect to have the pass-through entities pay tax at the entity level on the income flowing through to the owners.

Retail sales tax collections were $275.2 million, which is $4.8 million, or 1.7%, less than the January estimate but 6.6% more than January 2022. Compensating use tax collections were $86.1 million, which is $3.9 million, or 4.3%, less than the estimate, but 2.4% more than January 2022.
