Kansas Awaits Results of Tax Amnesty Program

KSAL StaffOctober 28, 2015

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas officials won’t learn for weeks whether a six-week tax amnesty program raised the $30 million that legislators anticipated.

Department of Revenue spokeswoman Jeannine Koranda said Tuesday that the agency is still processing paper amnesty applications. She said the department is not likely to have a figure for collections from the amnesty program until mid-November.

A law enacted by legislators earlier this year allowed the department to waive interest and other penalties for anyone who paid back taxes from Sept. 1 through Oct. 15.

The amnesty program was part of a larger package of measures for balancing the state budget that included increases in sales and cigarette taxes in July. Some legislators thought the $30 million projection for the amnesty program included in the budget was too optimistic.
