A group of state officials and university economists will meet on Thursday to update the forecast for how much the state will collect in taxes.

The numbers provided by the Consensus Revenue Estimating Group give Kansas lawmakers a better idea of the state’s finances as they work to write a new budget plan for the coming fiscal year.

The group might change the economic projections it made earlier. If that happens, the budget deficit facing lawmakers will either grow or shrink.

Kansas tax collections beat the estimate in December by $6 million.

Individual income taxes and sales tax receipts were higher than expected last month in Kansas. That helped outweigh drops in other areas like corporate income and cigarette taxes.

Acting Revenue Secretary Sam Williams says he hopes the sales tax jump is an indication that some sectors of the state economy are improving.
