KS Taxes $37M Short Of Expectations In October
A new report says Kansas collected $37 million less in taxes than anticipated in October, but officials think the shortfall will be temporary.
The Department of Revenue said Wednesday the state took in almost $477 million during the month. That's about 7 percent less than the $514 million officials had expected.
