Title: Reduces State Income Tax Rates

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that reduces income tax rates for individuals and corporations.

Highlights:
  • Requires the excess percentage amount that is gathered when the active fiscal year’s “selected actual state general fund receipts” exceeds the same amount for the immediately preceding fiscal year by at least 2 percent to be certified to the Kansas Secretary of Revenue and Budget Director (Sec. 1).
  • Defines “selected actual state general fund receipts” as receipts from certain taxes and fees including, but not limited to, the following taxes and fees (Sec. 1):
    • The individual and corporation income and corporation franchise taxes;
    • The financial institutions privilege taxes;
    • The annual franchise fees charged following law and mineral severance taxes; and
    • The retail sales, compensating use, cigarette and tobacco product, cereal malt beverage, liquor gallonage, and liquor drink and enforcement taxes.
  • Requires the secretary to reduce income tax rates for the following tax year based on the excess percentage amount of the active year as follows (Sec. 1):
    • For individuals with the highest marginal income tax rate, the rate is to be calculated by such fiscal year’s excess percentage minus 0.5 percent;
    • For individuals with the lowest marginal income tax rate, the rate is to be calculated by such fiscal year’s excess percentage plus 0.5 percent; and
    • For any individual marginal income tax rate that is below 0.4 percent, the rate is to be 0 percent.
  • Requires rate reductions to be applied for the surtax on corporations by such excess percentage amount only after all individual marginal income tax rates have been reduced to 0 percent (Sec. 1).
  • Requires rate reductions to be “proportionately” applied for the tax on corporations, the tax on state and national banks, and the tax on trust companies and savings and loan associations by such excess percentage only after first being applied to the surtax until reduced to 0 percent (Sec. 1).
