Nonprofits Hope to Benefit from Raffle Amendment
Associated Press - November 10, 2014 11:38 am
Nonprofit groups say they are looking forward to raising money from charity raffles, after voters approved a constitutional amendment clarifying that the raffles are legal.
However, the nonprofit groups are waiting to see what new rules lawmakers will write for the raffles during the next legislative session.
The Kansas Department of Revenue says lawmakers will consider such issue as whether nonprofits will need a license, how often raffles can be conducted and whether raffle sales will be taxed.
The Wichita Eagle reports new regulations likely would take effect in July 2015.
Voters passed the amendment last week by an overwhelming 75 percent.
