Kansas families are tightening their belts and adjusting their budgets. Government should have to do the same! Kansas has had excess revenues and currently ranks in the top 10 for highest taxed states. Our state budget has increased over 50% in the last decade making this year’s budget the highest ever. Kansas’s graduated income tax complicates the state’s tax code discouraging work, job creation, and making it harder for Americans to live their American Dream. With the cost of living skyrocketing, Kansans deserve to keep more of their hard-earned dollars!
While government coffers have ballooned, Kansas families have had to tighten their belts and think critically about their budgets, government should have to the same. Kansas families need relief and a simpler, flatter, lower single rate tax code will do just that.
