Taxes were on the docket as Sen. Virgil Peck discussed rebates and exemptions.
Sen. Peck first talked about a proposal that Gov. Laura Kelly unveiled in December and mentioned in her State of the State address Tuesday night in Topeka about giving money back to Kansas taxpayers.
Under Gov. Kelly’s plan, Kansas will return approximately $445 million to over 1.2 million Kansas resident taxpayers. Additionally, as a one-time payment, this will have no impact on the state’s ongoing ability to collect revenues that fund critical services. The proposal will be paid for with Kansas’ current budget surplus and is intended to provide relief to tax filers who are Kansas residents.
Sen. Peck also talked about a bill that he is currently drafting to help ag producers.
