Kansas Revenues Beat July Estimate

Kansas residents who buy health insurance on their own could see their premiums increase up to 25.4 percent next year under new rates approved by the state's Insurance Department this week.
Kansas officials say revenue collections beat estimates by $3.1 million in the first month of the new fiscal year.
A report Wednesday from the Department of Revenue says July’s figures were boosted by strong sales tax collections, which were $9.1 million higher than expected. Overall revenues for the month totaled $425.4 million.
Among other categories, individual income tax collections in July topped expectations by $3.4 million. But corporate income taxes came in $1 million below the figure predicted earlier by economists and researchers.
Severance taxes on production from Kansas oil wells also missed the estimate, by nearly $1.2 million.
