TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Tax collections in Kansas in April are down slightly from what state officials were anticipating, but officials say the numbers remain strong compared to a year ago.
The Department of Revenue says Monday that collections were off $1.4 million in April. The agency said taxpayers had two more days than last year to file their tax returns and that the department was still processing filings. Individual income tax collections were off $1.5 million from estimates.
Kansas collected $723.1 million compared to the $724.5 million that was anticipated.
Sales tax collections exceeded the estimate by nearly $1.3 million in April. That was still $15.5 million more than during April 2011.
For the fiscal year that began July 1, Kansas has collected $280.3 million more than the same point in 2011.
