TOPEKA – Kansas marks the end of Fiscal Year 2021 with $8.9 billion in total tax collections for the year. That is a $758.1 million, or 9.3%, growth over the estimate. For June, total tax collections were $854.4 million; $157.4 million, or 22.6%, more than the estimate. That is $110.0 million more than last June.
“Our positive June tax receipt numbers show that our efforts to rebuild our state’s economic foundation and strengthen our economy are paying off,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “As we transition into the next fiscal year, my administration will continue moving our economy forward by prioritizing pro-growth policies that will support Kansas businesses and families.”
