It plans to provide a worksheet in its instruction booklet for calculating income, deductions and other data.<br /><br />The agency says the approach adheres to the Kansas Constitution&#39;s definition of marriage. It contends the recent U.S. Supreme Court case upheld the rights of states to define and regulate marriage.<br /> Mon, 07 Oct 2013 12:45:43 +0000 Associated Press 24490 at http://kmuw.org
