Kansas House Bill 2117 Prevents Repeal of Sales Tax Reduction


UPDATE: May 22, 2012. Governor Brownback signed House Bill 2117 into law.

As amended, Kansas House Bill 2117 retains the sales tax rate reduction that is due to go into effect July 1, 2013. Per earlier legislation, Kansas State’s 6.3 percent sales tax rate is scheduled to reduce to 5.7 percent. The Governor attempted to repeal that legislation as part of this bill.

According to the Supplemental Note On Senate Substitute For House Bill No. 2117, “The Senate Committee of the Whole amended the bill to remove that part of the Governor’s recommendation that would have maintained the sales tax rate at 6.3 percent on and after July 1, 2013….”
