Governor Kelly’s proposed tax cut plan for Kansas aims to provide relief to working families by eliminating the sales tax on necessary items, creating a sales tax holiday, and reducing taxes for retirees.
One of the plan’s main features is the immediate elimination of the state sales tax on groceries, diapers, and feminine hygiene products. This will allow Kansans to keep more of their hard-earned money and ensure that essential items are more affordable.
Sales Tax Holiday
The plan includes a sales tax holiday for back-to-school shopping, which will provide further savings to families. This holiday will make it easier for families to purchase necessary school supplies without the burden of sales tax.
Another critical aspect of the plan is the reduction of taxes for retirees, ensuring that nobody making under $100,000 pays full taxes on Social Security income. This will provide relief to seniors who have already contributed to the state and deserve to keep more of their retirement income.
Governor Kelly’s tax cut plan is projected to save Kansans more than $500 million over the next three years, in addition to the $1 billion in savings from last year’s tax cuts. By reducing taxes for working families, Governor Kelly’s plan will stimulate the economy and provide much-needed relief to those who need it most.
It’s important to note that the state of Kansas has already made significant strides in tax reduction by axing the state sales tax on groceries. However, the zeroing-out of this tax isn’t scheduled until 2025, which is why Governor Kelly’s plan is so critical. By taking action now, the Governor can provide even more relief to working families.
Governor Kelly’s plan will not jeopardize our schools. By balancing tax cuts with responsible spending, the state can ensure that our schools are fully funded and that our children receive the education they deserve.
